Foreign Relations Law Workshop

The annual Duke-Harvard Foreign Relations Law Workshop is a collaborative effort of Professor Curt Bradley of Duke and Professor Jack Goldsmith of Harvard. Alternating between the Duke and Harvard law schools, each year the workshop brings together leading scholars of U.S. foreign relations law, who write and discuss short papers focused on a particular topic. In recent years the workshop has focused on topics such as international human rights litigation, the war powers of the President, and the status of treaties in the U.S. legal system.

This year marks the seventh annual meeting of the Workshop, which will be held at Harvard on Saturday, October 8th. The focus this year will be on "Historical Practice and the President's War Powers."

Saturday, Oct. 8

The 2011 Duke-Harvard Foreign Relations Law Workshop will discuss constitutional custom as it relates to the distribution of war authority between Congress and the President, a topic made particularly relevant by recent debate over U.S. military operations in Libya. The invitation-only workshop is held every year and is coordinated by Duke Law Professor Curtis Bradley and Harvard Law Professor Jack Goldsmith. The topic for this year's workshop is connected to the Duke Custom and Law Project. Contact Curt Bradley for more information.
