Legacy of President Obama’s foreign affairs discussed during national conference

On September 18, 2015, two dozen of the country’s leading international law experts discussed the legacy of the Obama Administration in foreign affairs at our Cox Center’s 25th Anniversary Conference.  

Ambassador Stephen Rapp delivered the keynote address, describing the delicate pas de deux the Obama Administration has performed with the International Criminal Court.  

Subsequent panels--moderated by Professors Juscelino Colares, Avidan Cover, Richard Gordon, Michael Scharf and Tim Webster--explored the unrest in the Middle East, climate change, international tax policy, immigration, and the pivot to East Asia.  

A record 180 attended the conference, which was the International Law Association's “International Law Weekend Midwest.” The Conference papers will be published in the Spring 2016 issue of the Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law.
