2017 Symposium

The Law of Nations and the United States Constitution

In November 2017, The Georgetown Law Journal hosted a two day panel discussion about the status of customary international law under the Constitution and the role of such law in U.S. courts. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and four judges of the U.S. Courts of Appeals participated in the opening panel that explored the “Judicial Perspective” on the status of customary international law under the Constitution and the role of such law in U.S. Courts. The second day of panels reassessed the status of customary international law in U.S. courts in light of the framework presented in Professors Clark and Bellia’s book, “The Law of Nations and the United States Constitution.” Scholarship from this event was published in Volume 106, Issue 6 of the Georgetown Law Journal.
