Adv. Research: International Investment Law Seminar – Law 795IV -001

This seminar is intended to provide students with the opportunity to engage in intensive research into various aspects of International Investment Law. Ideally, students should have taken the course on International Law of Foreign Investment, or courses on Bilateral Investment Treaty Arbitration, International Commercial Arbitration, or similar courses directly relating to investor state arbitration. This seminar will be suitable for those students interested in pursuing a career in international investment law. Students will be required to undertake independent and in depth research into various aspects of international investment law, including but not limited to: what constitutes a “foreign investment”; establishing the nationality of claims; attribution and State Responsibility; expropriation, nationalization and similar acts; breaches of contractual obligations; the Fair and Equitable Treatment Standard and other treaty breaches; compensation; and sovereign immunity. Students will be expected to make presentations on their research subject and defend the findings among their peers.
