About the Symposium: Harvard Law Professor Jack Goldsmith, former Assistant Attorney General for the Office of the Legal Counsel, will deliver a featured lecture at the Frederick K. Cox International Law Center’s daylong symposium. Held in the critical swing-state of Ohio at the height of the 2012 Presidential election campaign, this timely symposium explores the contemporary debate over the foreign affairs powers of the President. Two dozen former high-level government officials and leading academics will discuss: Presidential Power in a War without End; The War Powers Resolution at 40; Rendition and Targeted Killings of Americans; The President’s Power to Manage International Economic Affairs; The President’s Power to Implement International Law after Medellin v. Texas; and Comparing the Approach of the Presidential Candidates.

This symposium is serving as the Annual Meeting of the American National Section of the International Association of Penal Law, and is being co-sponsored by the American Society of International Law, the American Branch of the International Law Association, the Cleveland Council for World Affairs, and the Public International Law and Policy Group. It was made possible by a generous grant by the Wolf Family Foundation.
