Webcast of Bellinger Lecture
Here’s video of State Department Legal Adviser John Bellinger’s talk earlier this week inaugurating Duke’s international law center. It’s a broadly sweeping effort to justify the Bush Administration’s posture to international law as one that isn’t antagonistic. A primary theme: most of our differences with the Europeans in particular are policy differences, not legal ones. One thing you wouldn’t hear from many other Administration officials: IL should be a more central component of the law school curriculum.
