Photo of Harold KohDETROIT – Harold Hongju Koh, former Yale Law School dean and legal advisor to the U.S. Department of State, will speak at Wayne State University Law School Tuesday, Jan. 29 on his new book, “The Trump Administration and International Law.”

Koh will discuss why President Donald Trump, in his first two years, is not “winning” in his effort to resign the United States from global leadership, and how the resistance is blunting his initiatives. His book also offers a counter-strategy to preserve the rule of law against the Trump administration’s many initiatives to change the nature of America’s relationship with international law and its institutions.

The event, presented by Wayne Law’s Program for International Legal Studies, will be from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. at the Law School, 471 W. Palmer St., in Lecture Hall 2242. The program is free, open to the public and lunch will be provided. Registration is requested at rsvp.wayne.edu/haroldkoh19.

Koh is the Sterling Professor of International Law at Yale Law School and is one of the country’s leading experts in public and private international law, national security law and human rights.
