Former U.S. Government Legal Advisor John Bellinger To Speak At Penn State

Member of former President George W. Bush’s staff John Bellinger will speak at Penn State at 4 p.m. Thursday, February 8 in Sutliff Auditorium of the Katz Law Building. His lecture, “International Law Under President Trump: A One-Year Assessment,” is presented by Penn State’s Center for Security Research and Education.

The most senior international lawyer in the U.S. government from 2005 to 2009, Bellinger directed more than 170 legal officials on both domestic and international law issues as legal advisor to the State Department.

Before his tenure with the State Department, he advised the president and cabinet officials on defense and security law as the legal advisor to the National Security Council from 2001 to 2005. He also represented the Bush administration in proceedings with the 9/11 Commission.

Bellinger served as counsel to several other government agencies in the span of his decades-long legal career, including the Justice Department and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. He is now a partner at Arnold and Porter Kaye Scholar LLP.
