CUNY School of Law Professor Ruthann Robson’s “Constitutional Law Prof Blog” was named to the ABA Journal’s Blawg 100 list for 2016. Professor Robson and John Marshall Law School Professor Steven Schwinn created the blog in 2008 and have co-edited it since then.
The “Constitutional Law Prof Blog” provides an accessible overview of constitutional law issues at the state, federal and international levels. The ABA Journal noted its “same-day coverage and analysis of the most newsworthy constitutional law cases at the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals and state supreme court levels.” The magazine writers highlighted Professor Robson’s “Daily Read” posts and her thoughtful commentary.
“Writing the blog requires me to keep up to date and to be deeply involved with constitutional law developments,” said Professor Robson. “Over the years, this has been quite useful in my own scholarship and teaching, as well a good resource for students. I know the blog is also a source for other scholars and reporters interested in constitutional law issues.”
Professor Robson is a frequent commentator on constitutional and sexuality issues. She is a CUNY Distinguished Professor, recognized for national renown in her field. Her books include Dressing Constitutionally: Hierarchy, Sexuality, and Democracy (2013); Sappho Goes to Law School (1998); Gay Men, Lesbians, and the Law (1996); and Lesbian (Out)Law: Survival Under the Rule of Law (1992).
