Professor Stephen Griffin’s book Long Wars and the Constitution will be featured at a Boston University School of Law symposium Oct.30.
Current efforts to tackle the militant group calling itself the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria make Tulane Professor Stephen Griffin’s examination of authority for using military force even more timely than when his book Long Wars and the Constitution was published in 2013.
Griffin’s work will be highlighted during a day-long event at Boston University School of Law Oct. 30.
The BU Law Review Symposium On War Powers and the Constitution also will feature War Powers: The Politics of Constitutional Authority by Mariah Zeisberg, an associate political science professor at the University of Michigan.
Griffin, the Rutledge C. Clement, Jr. Professor in Constitutional Law, recently was named to a W.R. Irby Chair.
The event is open to the public. More information is available here.
