Federalist Society National Student Convention Today and Tomorrow at Penn Law
Michael Ramsey

Here is the announcement from the Federalist Society:

Penn Law's Federalist Society Chapter 

40th Annual National Student Symposium 

March 19-20, 2021

"International Law & U.S. Foreign Policy"

Titled "International Law and US Foreign Policy," the Symposium will focus on issues such as constitutional interpretation, international governance, trade, and human rights. For the past 20 years the U.S. has found itself engaging in a variety of conflicts across the globe, confronting the rise of geopolitical rivals in both military and economic influence, and most recently combating the global impact of COVID-19. The newfound focus on U.S. foreign policy has introduced an array of complex and contentious legal and political issues.
