For most of the United States’ early history, non-interventionism reigned as the dominate school of thought regarding foreign policy. As the United States grew, the country could no longer avoid entanglements with other states. Though largely abandoned, non-interventionism played a significant role in United States hesitation to join both World War I & II. However, United States foreign policy fundamentally shifted after the Marshall Plan in the 1948. Further, trapped in a Cold War, not only did the United States greatly expand its foreign aid, but began using its military force to topple dictators and contain the spread of communism. The War on Terror brought the longest military engagement in United State history. North Korea and Iran are on track to become nuclear powers. But where’s the nuance in that? Come join ACS to discuss US foreign policy objective and the US role in international affairs. Does the United States have a responsibility to engage broad based foreign policy as it does? What mistakes has history taught that we have yet to learn? Was there a point at which the United States made a miscalculation? Let’s discuss these questions and many more. We look forward to seeing you at our fifth Where‘s the Nuance discussion of the semester!
The Child & Family Law Society will have a general meeting to discuss upcoming events and fundraisers that we have planned, including a book drive and bake sale with the Cannabis Law Society, and to reveal the design of our first-ever CFLS t-shirt! This is a meeting you don’t want to miss! Lunch will be served.
This educational seminar, focusing on law students, teaches skills to reduce stress, increase self-compassion and improve sense of wellbeing and connectedness. This six-session series will guide students through an experiential learning process aimed at applying mindfulness in daily life. Interested students do not have to preregister and can attend as many sessions as they like.
Please join your SBA in their weekly meeting!
