Please join professors Laurence Helfer, Rachel Brewster, and Curt Bradley as they discuss treaty withdrawal and international law. They will cover topics such as: Under what conditions can the United States withdraw from international treaties? Not too long ago President Trump signed an executive order to withdraw from the Transpacific Partnership. He has also threatened to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement and has promised to renegotiate NAFTA. Can he do that? The focus will be on potential withdrawals from agreements to which the United States is a party, but the panel will also discuss recent treaty exit issues considered by other countries, such as Brexit. Lunch will be served. Co-sponsored by the Center for International and Comparative Law and the Center on Law, Race, and Politics. For more information, please contact Kristin Triebel at
