On the 15th of July our GJ university assistant Carolina Alves das Chagas defended her doctoral thesis under the title “Judicial Avoidance in Constitutional Courts: The Legitimacy of Deciding not to Decide in Constitutional Adjudication”. Despite the unusual online format of her rigorosum, Ms. Alves das Chagas could nevertheless convince her two supervisors, Prof. Matthias Klatt and Prof. Christoph Bezemek, beyond doubt that her work merits the highest grading of summa cum laude honors. The entire GJ team warmly congratulates her on this success!
But still, the hard work is not over with yet. Dr. Alves das Chagas is now busily working on the publication of her thesis, which we are eagerly awaiting (tba)!
