Dear SHEARites, it’s less than a week until our 39th annual meeting opens in Philadelphia and I have a few updates and reminders to share with you.
Dear H-SHEAR subscribers:
The U.S. Civil War from 1861-1865 resulted in a forging of a second constitution that in time transformed the structures of American governance. With the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment, the nation recast the relationship between the state and subordinated people.
The antebellum Attorney General was allowed to have private clients. Does anyone know of any cases where the AG (in a private capacity) represented (in the Supreme Court or any U.S. court of record) a foreign state, foreign government instrumentality, foreign government agency, foreign government-affiliated entity (including a foreign government-affiliated commercial entity), or a foreign (civilian or military) government official, officer, or employee (on behalf of that foreign government)?
