    The panel will discuss Prof. David Flatto’s new book, The Crown and the Courts: Separation of Powers and the Early Jewish Imagination (https://www.amazon.com/Crown-Courts-Separation-Powers-Imagination/dp/0674737105). Our two commentators will be Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Justice Daphne Barak-Erez. Both do not require an introduction, but briefly, Dean Chemerinsky of Berkeley Law is a public intellectual and perhaps the leading constitutional law scholar of our era. Justice Barak-Erez is one of Israel’s prominent administrative law scholars and a former dean of the Tel Aviv University Buchmann Faculty of Law. Since 2012, she has been a Justice on the Israeli Supreme Court. Prof. Eli Wald of the Sturm College of Law at the University of Denver, Chair of the Jewish Law Section, will moderate the discussion.
