Professor Pammela Quinn organized and moderated a discussion at the American Society of International Law Annual Meeting on April 5 in Washington, D.C.
The discussion, “Teaching International Law in an Age of Global Retreat from International Agreements,” included Lecturer and Clinical Instructor Anna Crowe of Harvard Law School, former Associate Dean Susan Karamanian of the George Washington University Law School and Professor Rachel López of the Kline School of Law.
The panelists explored teaching law in an atmosphere of re-entrenchment against globalism that has emerged politically and manifested in movements such as Brexit and the Trump administration’s critique of the World Trade Organization and opposition to U.S. involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
The society’s 2018 Annual Meeting, which draws policymakers, practitioners, legal scholars and students, is focused on “International Law in Practice.”
Quinn’s scholarship focuses on the regulation of institutions and actors across national borders. Her current research explores strategies for regulating transnational corporations and promoting corporate responsibility. Her recent article, “Sponsoring Corruption,” appeared in the 2017 symposium issue of Maryland Journal of International Law.
