John F. Manning ’85, the Bruce Bromley Professor of Law at Harvard and an expert in administrative law, statutory interpretation, separation of powers law and the federal courts, has been elected a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

“John’s vital and meticulous scholarship, superb expertise in practice and theory of public law, and leadership in the academy and beyond are rivaled only by his excellence as a teacher and colleague,” said Dean Martha Minow. “This selection reflects the high regard in which he is held around the country and it an honor so well deserved.”

This year, 198 individuals were selected to join the AAAS, one of the nation’s most prestigious honorary societies, whose ranks include scholars, scientists, writers, artists, politicians, and civic, corporate and philanthropic leaders.
