Constitutional "Niches": The Role of Institutional Context in Constitutional Law

The UCLA Law Review has just published a wonderful symposium issue under the title above.  Since I'm one of the contributors, it will be no surprise that I think the exploration of the importance of institutional context in constitutional law, and the possibility of re-approaching constitutional law from a perspective that distinctly and explicitly considers the nature, role and value of a variety of public and private institutions, is an important and quickly growing body of scholarship.  I hope folks who are interested in universities and academic freedom will take a look at my piece, but there are wonderful articles from some great contributors on a wealth of subjects, including separation of powers, public employment, federalism, and other topics.  I'd like to think this topic will be of increasing interest in the field of constitutional scholarship, and commend the entire issue to interested readers.  The issue can be found here.
