Here is the Summer 2019 Supplement for Bradley & Goldsmith, Foreign Relations Law: Cases and Materials (6th ed. 2017). This supplement covers, among other things, the Supreme Court’s decision in Trump v. Hawaii (the “travel ban” case), which is excerpted with questions as part of a newly revised section on judicial deference to the Executive Branch; the Court’s decision in Jesner v. Arab Bank concerning corporate liability under the Alien Tort Statute; the Trump administration’s withdrawal from various international agreements; President Trump’s declaration of a national emergency in connection with his effort to fund construction of a border wall; and the ongoing litigation over “sanctuary jurisdictions.”

I am also pleased to announce that Professor Ashley Deeks will be joining me and Curt Bradley on the next edition of the casebook as a co-author, and that she has assisted in the preparation of this supplement.
