Professor Elizabeth Rindskopf Parker is keeping busy on her well-earned sabbatical year before her expected return to the faculty next fall.
She was a featured speaker at the annual conference of the ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security, which celebrated its 50th anniversary at a formal dinner at the Supreme Court of the United States on Nov. 30, 2012. Justice Antonin Scalia gave the keynote address.
Prior to the dinner, on Nov. 27-29 in Washington, D.C., she participated in a meeting of the Judicial Conference's International Judicial Relations Committee. Parker holds the academic seat on that interdisciplinary panel, having been appointed to a three-year term by Chief Justice John Roberts a year ago.
Parker is still very much involved in legal education. She has been asked to chair a new Globalizing Committee by AALS President Lauren Robel and is preparing an ambitious agenda for a workshop at the AALS Annual Meeting in January in New Orleans.
