    "Institutionalizing Dissent"

    Case Western Reserve University School of Law

    Speaker:

    Neal K. Katyal


    Summary:

    How can we restructure the Executive Branch to create separation of powers in an age of partisan conflict? Is there a way to create institutions that argue against one another? The Judiciary, of course, has such features, but it is conventionally thought that the Executive (particularly in this unitary age) does not. This lecture will explain why that’s descriptively and normatively incorrect. Drawing on everything from the CIA’s red cells to the Solicitor General’s role, Professor Katyal will put forth a different way of thinking about the Executive Branch.

    "The Art of International Law - Part 1"

    Case Western Reserve University School of Law


    Case Western Reserve University School of Law, in conjunction with the celebration of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s centennial anniversary, convenes a day-long conference with scholars and practitioners from around the world to explore topics at the intersection of art and international law.

    International law has regulated artistic production, preservation and transfer for many decades, yet recent events have drawn renewed attention to its new possibilities and limitations.

    The obliteration of historical, religious and cultural monuments by ISIS, repatriation of artworks by museums to their country of origin after prolonged negotiations and lawsuits, and the churn of cultural production have brought significant challenges to this field, with modern cultural expression and transnational financing networks creating new forms of art, new audiences, new laws, and new norms of protecting artistic production in the United States and around the world.

    This conference examines today’s dynamic relationship between art and international law, providing insight into prominent cross-border deals, laws and cases involving art repatriation and the international legal issues arising out of the destruction of cultural and religious relics. The conference will feature a lunchtime discussion with Dr. William Griswold, President and Director of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
