Rabkin Participates in AEI Panel on the Law of the Sea Treaty

On July 17, 2007, Professor Jeremy Rabkin appeared on a panel hosted by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) and moderated by University Professor and Professor of Law Ronald Rotunda to discuss the proposed Senate ratification of the Convention on the Law of the Sea. Other panelists included Susan Biniaz of the State Department and Rear Admiral John Crowley of the U.S. Coast Guard. Professor Rabkin recently co-authored an editorial in the Washington Post opposing ratification of the treaty on the grounds that it would hinder this country's anti-terrorism efforts by subjecting the U.S. Navy to the jurisdiction of international tribunals.
