                          Lawyers, Liberals, and America’s Search for World Order

                          Did anticommunism determine American grand strategy in the last century? No, the law did. By exploring the relationship between legal theory and foreign policy, we will excavate a lost conversation about U.S. power -- one that shaped America's strategic mindset during the mid-twentieth century -- and explore the role that law played in U.S. foreign relations history.

                          Join us for this lecture by University at Albany Professor Ryan M. Irwin. Brought to you by the University at Albany History Department and Albany Law School. Reception to follow.

                          Can a NYS Constitutional Convention Strengthen Government Ethics?

                          ​​​ With so much talk about the erosion of integrity in government, can the problems with elected officials that so frequently dominate our headlines be fixed statutorily or are they more appropriately addressed through constitutional change? As November 2017 and a statewide referendum on whether or not to call a constitutional convention nears, this and other questions will be increasingly on the minds of the voters. This forum will address these important issues.
