Professor Dudziak is a legal historian who is interested in the relationship between international affairs and domestic law and politics, and in comparative constitutional history. She has written extensively about the impact of foreign affairs on U.S. civil rights policy during the Cold War. Her forthcoming book is a transnational history about Thurgood Marshall's work with Kenya nationalists in the 1960s, Exporting American Dreams: Thurgood Marshall's African Journey. Her next book project will look broadly at the impact of war on American law and politics during the 20th century.

The Soper Lecture Fund was established in 1963 in memory of Morris Ames Soper, former Judge of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, by contributions from his former law clerks and the Alumni Association of the School of Law. The income is to be used to provide lectures by distinguished judges, lawyers, and scholars on legal topics of contemporary interest to members of the Maryland Bar as well as students at the School of Law. Judge Soper was an alumnus of the School of Law, Class of 1895, and a member of the faculty from 1918 to 1926.
