A.J. Bellia, the O’Toole Professor of Constitutional Law at Notre Dame, has co-authored a path-breaking book on customary international law and the United States Constitution with Bradford R. Clark, the William Cranch Research Professor of Law at George Washington University Law School. The Law of Nations and the United States Constitution, published by Oxford University Press (2017), is the latest work in their years-long research collaboration.

Georgetown University Law Center will hold a two-day conference on the book, November 2-3. Leading constitutional and international law scholars, along with prominent federal judges — including Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito — will discuss the book and its implications for the role of international law in U.S. courts.
