The DJCLPP will be holding the second in its series of conversations with the authors we are publishing this issue. This lecture will be by Professor Frédéric Sourgens from Washburn University School of Law. He will be discussing his article entitled States of Resistance, where he argues that state governments, rather than only the federal government, should (and constitutionally can) participate in global governance networks. In doing so, states will both counterbalance the Executive's power over foreign affairs and, even more importantly, compel federal policymakers and administrators to enter into governance networks in competition with the states, thereby enriching the transnational legal process. We invite students and faculty to engage with Professor Sourgens on both the substance of his piece as well as his writing process. Lunch will be served (accommodating both vegan and gluten free diets). Sponsored by the DJCLPP. For more information, please contact Leigh Markowitz at Leigh.Markowitz@lawnet.duke.edu.
