On Thursday, March 23, 2023, at 12 p.m. EDT, legal reference specialist Louis Myers and Librarian-in-Residence Olivia Kane-Cruz will present our next Lunch and Learn Webinar, “Recent Developments in U.S. Foreign Relations Law and Research Strategies.”

Please register here.

This webinar will provide an overview of recent developments in U.S. foreign relations law, including statutes, cases, and international agreements passed over the last two years. The webinar will also provide practical examples highlighting the various aspects of U.S. foreign relations law and strategies to effectively research this dynamic area of law.

The presentation will introduce general concepts of public international law and a specific explanation of U.S. practice in international law, or practice in foreign relations law. Much of the content will be sourced from the Digest of the United States Practice in International Law, a U.S. Department of State yearbook publication. The presentation will include examples of immigration law, extradition and mutual legal assistance, international tribunal action, customary law, environmental issues, and recent treaties.
