The Legal Contours of Cold War II

Please join Professor Mamlyuk on Monday, April 14 at 3:45 in Room 326 for a substantive discussion of the underlying foreign policy/international law issues raised by the Ukraine crisis, and ensuing fallout.

According to senior U.S. policymakers and senior analysts in the ‘West’ and ‘Russia,’ a new Cold War has started.  The origins of Cold War II are many, but simplified greatly, the rub appears to be alleged U.S. support for ‘regime change’ in Ukraine, and Russia’s annexation of a strategically important peninsula in the northern Black Sea, Crimea.  This presentation will explore the significance of the new Cold War, including implications for U.S. foreign and domestic policy. 


Law Review Membership Interest Meeting:  For all 1L students interested in the University of Memphis Law Review, please join us for an informational meeting on April 14, at noon in room 325.  We will discuss the Summer Write-On Competition, which is a writing and Bluebooking competition that determines who receives invitations to membership on Law Review. This meeting is MANDATORY for any students interested in competing for Law Review membership.
