I spent part of the past week in Taipei at an international conference marking the 70th anniversary of the Constitutional Court of Taiwan. The conference opened with remarks from the President of the Republic, followed by a keynote address by the retired Chief Justice of Canada, Beverley McLachlin, for whom I served as a law clerk many years ago. The program was held over two days and featured a few lectures on subjects of importance to Court's history and future. I delivered a lecture on the Court's case law on constitutional amendments; it was entitled "The Judicial Role in Constitutional Amendment and Dismemberment." I leave Taiwan with gratitude to my hosts for a wonderful event full of learning and enjoyment--and delicious food!
