The course examines the law governing the conduct of American foreign relations. First, we will consider the distribution of the foreign affairs power between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Special attention will be given to the original understanding of the foreign affairs power and how the constitutional design has (or has not) changed over time. Second, we will examine the statutory distribution of authority in foreign affairs. The course will conclude with a review of legal constraints on the foreign affairs power imposed by the states, the judiciary, and by international law.


Real-time attendance at the first Zoom class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped.
