New Beginnings, Resets and Pivots: The International Legal Practice of the Obama Administration

ILW/Midwest 2015 Case Western Reserve University School of Law Frederick K. Cox International Law Center

When president Obama entered the White House in 2009, many believed he would make a commitment to the rule of law a centerpiece of his foreign policy agenda. As his presidency draws to a close, this conference asks to what extent has the Obama Administration complied with, challenged, or sought to refashion international law? This conference, which serves as the International Law Association's "International Law Weekend/Midwest," will features experts from the government, academy, legal profession and others to investigate areas where the Obama Administration stuck to, or strayed from, the letter of international law, the purposes for these choices, and the results of these trajectories.
