Professor SáCouto will be teaching a 3-credit practicum this spring, where students will be placed in teams and work on projects undertaken in partnership with organizations involved in the investigation and prosecution of serious international crimes, such as international and internationalized courts and tribunals; domestic courts with jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute serious international crimes; government offices; and inter- or non-governmental groups working in support of the investigation or prosecution of such crimes. Under close supervision of the professor, students will learn substantive law and develop some of the critical research, writing and advocacy skills necessary to practice in the rapidly evolving field of international criminal law. Prior or concurrent enrollment in International Law, International Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure or Evidence is recommended. Practicum enrollment will be limited to 8 students. Students wishing to participate in the practicum component of the course will be asked to apply to enroll. To apply, students should send a resume and short statement of interest to warcrimes@wcl.american.edu, including why there are interested in participating in the course, a summary of relevant academic and/or professional experiences, and a transcript. This might be followed by a short interview if necessary.
