Assistant Professor Colangelo’s paper titled A Unified Approach to Extraterritoriality was accepted into the Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum to be held at Stanford Law School on June 24-25, 2011. The focus of the 12th annual session of the Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum is private law and dispute resolution. His paper was selected under the Private International Law category.

Colangelo’s article selected for presentation at the 2011 forum develops a unified approach to extraterritoriality. It uses the source of lawmaking authority behind a statute to discern the proper canon for construing that statute’s geographic reach and to evaluate whether application of the statute violates due process.

This marks Colangelo’s third paper accepted into the series. His article on The Foreign Commerce Clause was accepted in 2010 and another article, Double Jeopardy and Multiple Sovereigns: A Jurisdictional Theory, was selected for presentation in 2008.
