Conducting Foreign Relations Without Authority: The Logan Act

Conducting Foreign Relations Without Authority: The Logan Act

Date: February 1, 2006
Creator: Seitzinger, Michael V
Description: The Logan Act was intended to prohibit United States citizens without authority from interfering in relations between the United States and foreign governments. There appear to have been no prosecutions under the Act in its more than 200 year history. However, there have been a number of judicial references to the Act, and it is not uncommon for it to be used as a point of challenge concerning dealings with foreign officials. Although attempts have been made to repeal the Act, it remains law and at least a potential sanction to be used against anyone who without authority interferes in the foreign relations of the United States.
