- [fuente] Bruce Arnold Ackerman (born August 19, 1943) is an American constitutional law scholar. He is a Sterling Professor at Yale Law School.
In 2010, he was named by Foreign Policy magazine to its list of top global thinkers.
Ackerman graduated from the Bronx High School of Science, received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard University in 1964 and Bachelor of Laws degree from Yale Law School in 1967. He clerked for U.S Court of Appeals Judge Henry J. Friendly from 1967 to 1968, and then for U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Marshall Harlan II from 1968 to 1969.
Ackerman joined the faculty of University of Pennsylvania in 1969. He was a Professor at Yale University from 1974 to 1982 and at Columbia University from 1982 to 1987. Since 1987 Ackerman has been the Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale. He teaches classes at Yale on the concepts of justice and on his theories of constitutional transformation (i.e., the Constitution of the Founders was transformed by the Civil War/Reconstruction and the New Deal). His wife, Susan Rose-Ackerman, is also a professor at Yale Law School who teaches classes on administrative law. Their son, John M. Ackerman, is also an academic who lives and works in Mexico. Their daughter, Sybil Ackerman-Munson is an environmentalist in Portland, Oregon. He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1986. He is also a Commander of the Order of Merit of the French Republic.
Ackerman is listed as counsel in U.S. Army Captain Nathan Michael Smith’s lawsuit against President Barack Obama. The lawsuit asserts five counts against the President: that Operation Inherent Resolve violates the War Powers Resolution, that the Constitution's Take Care Clause requires President Obama to publish a sustained legal justification of his actions, that the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Terrorists does not authorize the operation against ISIS, that the Iraq Resolution does not authorize the operation in Iraq, and that the Commander in Chief clause does not allow President Obama to authorize the operation. Captain Smith’s attorneys allege he has standing to sue because he will be personally liable for any damages he inflicts in an illegal war. The White House has responded that the lawsuit raises "legitimate questions".
Ackerman currently serves on the Advisory Council of Represent.Us, a nonpartisan anti-corruption organization.
