Assignment

Chapter 7 and the supplement, pages 16 & 17. This is a long chapter. We are not reading it for the deep factual record. You should be looking for the basic framework for the US legal effects of treaties, how they may be abrogated or modified, and the difference between Executive Agreements and treaties. Exactly what is the legal value of treaties on their own? What does it mean to enable a treaty by legislation? How does this affect the ability of the president to abrogate the effects of a treaty?
