International Law (LAW-660-002)
First-year full-time JD only
An introduction to the international legal system and processes. We will explore the basics of public international law through an examination of its fundamental elements. We will look at what makes up international law – the subjects of such law and the sources of its rules – as well as see how states and international organizations craft and use international law to deal with specific problems, such as protection of international human rights, international economic law, and the use of force. Time permitting, we will also consider some theoretical perspectives on international law. Students who take this course will not be eligible for the general International Law survey course (LAW-660) in the second, third or 4th years. (Examination)
