Interesting upcoming panel w/ John Bolton

U.S. Security, Trade, and Development
On Thursday, April 26, at the National Press Club, the Federalist Society will be hosting a very interesting panel at which John Bolton will be keynoting.

Sponsored by
THE FEDERALIST SOCIETY, USAID, AND THE LSU LAW CENTER

Lawyers with an international law practice, or with clients that operate in foreign countries, realize the relationship among U.S. Security and trade between developing and developed countries. Yet more general policy discussion of trade agreements often fails to consider the connection between trade and U.S. security. The U.S. has an interest in having allies that are strong and economically healthy, rather than weak and poor. Our two-part program will consider what internal legal reforms are necessary for both U.S. companies and its trading partners to benefit more fully from increased trade with the U.S.

Former AG Meese @ GMU on Apr. 18th

In a 1985 speech delivered to the American Bar Association, Attorney General Meese sparked a dramatic public debate on the question of constitutional interpretation, urging that the Court be guided by a “Jurisprudence of Original Intention.” Attorney General Meese will again take up the issue, reflecting on the 22 years since his original speech, commenting on the current status of constitutional interpretation, and questioning how the Judiciary can return to the principle of federalism.
