In just a few weeks the next American president will have been chosen by the American people. He will inherit a host of challenges from the current administration including instability in the financial markets; two wars; and the need to rebuild domestic infrastructure, reform healthcare, social security, and the tax code. However, in the globally connected world we live in today, the choice of president will affect not only the United States but many other nations as well, and our relations—political, economic and legal—with them.
Visiting Professor John Dugard will discuss how the outcome of the presidential election could impact international law while Professor Donald Horowitz will discuss the impact on relations in Asia. Professor Ebrahim Moosa will discuss the impact on relations with the Islamic world and Professor Christiane Lemke, Leibniz Universität Hannover, visiting at UNC-Chapel Hill, will discuss the likely response from Europe.

Environmental Law and Policy Clinic comments on proposed international regulations for mining the ocean floor
The Environmental Law and Policy Clinic weighed in on the first-ever regulations proposed for mineral exploitation of the ocean floor in June, emphasizing the need to protect deep-sea biodiversity and ecosystem function. Little is known about life in the deep sea, a region scientists have only recently begun to explore, but discoveries over the past few years by Duke scientists and others have provided glimpses of an astonishing range of biodiversity — including unique life forms thriving in super-heated thermal vent environments.
