Law professor to discuss international law and current administration

Wayne State University Law School will host Professor Harold Hongju Koh to discuss his book, “The Trump Administration and International Law,” on Tuesday, Jan. 29, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m. The lecture will be held in Lecture Hall 2242 of the Damon J. Keith Center for Civil Rights at Wayne Law, 471 W. Palmer in Detroit.

Koh is the Sterling Professor of International Law at Yale Law School and its former dean. He served as legal advisor to the State Department from 2009-13 and is and one of the country’s leading experts in public and private international law, national security law and human rights.

Koh’s book discusses why Trump, in his first two years, is not “winning” in his effort to resign the U.S. from global leadership, and how the resistance is blunting his initiatives. His book also offers a counter-strategy to preserve the rule of law against the Trump administration’s many initiatives to change the nature of America’s relationship with international law and its institutions.

This event is free and lunch will be provided. The registration will be available on January 1. For additional information, contact Gregory Fox at 313-577-0110 or
