Edward J. Eberle
An expert in constitutional and comparative law, Professor Ed Eberle concentrates his research on the contrast between American and German legal systems. Academics consider his book Dignity and Liberty: Constitutional Visions in Germany in the United States as required reading for those interested in German-American Comparative Law. Actively involved in the American Society of Comparative law, Professor Eberle recently served as a visiting professor at Boston University Law School teaching International Business Transactions and Comparative constitutional Law.
Professor Eberle’s passport reflects his interest in comparative law. He has taught or lectured at schools around the world including the University of Southern Denmark, the University of Heildlberg, the University of Munster, and the University of Konstanz. Professor Eberle however, remains grounded in the United States. As a U.S. Constitutional Law professor, he has focused on free speech and press issues. He has also been featured in the Associated Press and The New York Times.
Professor Eberle is a graduate of Columbia University (cum laude) and Northwestern University School of Law, where he served as Executive Editor of Northwestern Law Review.
