Meanwhile, in the UK: a small steering group (Sebastian Payne, Nick Barber, Jeff King and I) have been discussing the helpful responses to the consultation on formalising the UK Constitutional Law Group and relaunching it as the UK Constitutional Law Association. A revised set of rules is being drafted and a meeting (combining discussion/adoption of the rules and an academic event) is planned for January 2014. More details soon.
