SEMINAR ON INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL LAW— Newly Expanded (LAW-850-001) SPRING 2015 SEMESTER UNIVERSITY PROFESSOR NICHOLAS N. KITTRIE And Guest Experts TO ALL INTERESTED J.D., ADVANCED DEGREE STUDENTS, AND HUMPHREY AND OTHER NAMED FELLOWS
You need not be intending to practice, or to even come close to criminal law. But whether looking for a career in government, corporate or private practice -- this seminar is essential for your career hiring prospects whether specializing in human rights, international business transactions, finance, trade, travel or communications. Awareness and knowledge of state and Federal law are no longer sufficient for successful legal careers and success in a global society.
The Seminar will deal with both substantive law and with procedure. This Seminar is open to J.D. and higher degree candidates, and particularly to and Humphrey and Fulbright LL.M. Fellows. The scope and practice of International Criminal Law are very much in ascendance in recent times. The field is rapidly expanding beyond its traditional interest in piracy and slavery. International Criminal Law affects finance and banking, export and import trade, immigration and asylum, copyrights and trademarks, manufacturing and commerce, environment and cultural property protection, transportation and communications, armed conflicts and human rights.
The seminar will meet once weekly, on Wednesdays from 6:00-7:50 p.m. The 2-credit seminar will require a research paper on a topic selected by the student. A list of suggested subjects will be provided.
Seminar papers will satisfy the WCL Upper Level Writing Requirement, and expanded papers may accord the student one or two extra credit hours. No final exam is required for the satisfactory completion of this seminar.
You are invited to address me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions and information you may have.
