Andrew Koppelman is the John Paul Stevens Professor of Law and Professor of Political Science at Northwestern University, where he received the 2015 Walder Award for Research Excellence. His scholarship focuses on issues at the intersection of law and political philosophy. His books include The Tough Luck Constitution and the Assault on Health Care Reform (Oxford University Press, 2013), Defending American Religious Neutrality (Harvard University Press, 2013), and The Gay Rights Question in Contemporary American Law (University of Chicago Press, 2002).
The Constitutional Studies Program, a JMC partner program, is a minor that seeks to educate students on constitutional governments and how they may be used to secure the common good. Thoughtful and educated citizens must possess certain virtues; they must understand and be able to implement, defend, and, if need be, reform constitutional institutions. By creating informed citizens, the program contributes to the University’s mission to pursue truth and to nurture a concern for the common good that will bear fruit as learning becomes service to justice.
