Rao a Panelist in International Law Symposium

Professor Neomi Rao took part in a February 9 symposium on international law hosted by American University Washington College of Law's International Law Review, appearing as a panelist in a discussion entitled, "Must U.S. Courts Enforce America's International Agreements? A Discussion of Al-Bihani v. Obama."

The symposium's central questions were when and how international law is enforced and what its enforcement prospects are for the future. Scholars and practitioners were invited to share observations and experience to help identify current and future trends in the enforcement of both public and private international law.

Speakers Stephen Vladeck, Professor, American University Washington College of Law; Devon Chaffee, Advocacy Counsel, Law and Security Program, Human Rights First; and moderator Robert Goldman, Professor, American University Washington College of Law, appeared with Rao on the panel, which was held in Washington, D.C.
