SMU Dedman School of Law, along with Harvard Law School, each had two papers selected for presentations at the 11th session of the Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum, aimed at increasing the sense of community among American legal scholars, to be held at Yale Law School on June 18-19, 2010.
Assistant Professor Anthony Colangelo’
s paper, “The Foreign Commerce Clause”
was selected under the category of Constitutional Law – Theoretical Foundations.
The article identifies and evaluates limits on Congress’s power, contained in Article I of the Constitution, to regulate commerce with foreign nations–a power which Congress is increasingly using to project U.S. law abroad in new, and aggressive, ways.
