What: This symposium celebrates the publication of Foreign Affairs Federalism: The Myth of National Exclusivity, co-authored by BU Law Professor Robert Sloane and Tufts University Professor Michael Glennon. In their book, published by Oxford University Press, Glennon and Sloane challenge the notion that the federal government exercises exclusive control over U.S. foreign-policymaking. They argue that states and cities have entered this realm, citing examples of localities limiting greenhouse gas emissions, declaring nuclear free zones and sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants, establishing sister-city relationships, setting up informal diplomatic offices abroad, and sanctioning oppressive foreign governments. Examining the foreign affairs powers retained by the states under the Constitution, they provide an incisive analysis of the rules that empower and limit states and cities abroad.

When: Monday, September 19, 2016 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

What: Labor and Employment Law is a versatile field that interacts with a wide range of other legal disciplines. L&E Lawyers might negotiate a contract for the next David Ortiz (not that he could be replaced), protect an employee fired for discrimination, help a company navigate an increasingly complex workplace regulatory scheme or shape the direction of law in the state house or Congress. The workplace provides a dynamic range of opportunities for lawyers with different skills and interests: the litigator, the transactional attorney, the legislator, the counselor or someone that wants to do all of these things. The BU Law Employment and Labor Law Student Association connects students with L&E opportunities through educational and networking events. Check out our First General Meeting on Monday, September 19th from 1-2pm in Room 420 to learn more about the Association. 1L Student Rep elections will be held and of course there will be some sort of free food.
