Douglas Jacobson, Kaveh Miremadi
Assessment: Undecided,Writing Assignments,Class Participation
The course will provide students with a comprehensive introduction to U.S. sanctions and export controls, while also providing students with opportunities to develop practical skills in the practice of law through written work products and exercises involving sanctions and export controls. A guiding principle of the course will be to reinforce students’ academic learning with real-life applications of that learning. For example, exercises in class and for home will require students to produce client memoranda, license applications, voluntary self-disclosures, and other common work-products produced by practitioners in this area of law.
Textbooks and Other Materials
The textbook information on this page was provided by the instructor. Students should use this information when considering purchases from the AU Campus Store or other vendors. Students may check to determine if books are currently available for purchase online.
In order to focus on the substantial discussion of the topics and spur discussion in class, students are assigned background reading material to be completed before each class. Assigned readings will typically be 75 pages per week.
Because of the constantly evolving nature of sanctions and export controls, the reading assignments may be amended prior to the next class session with recent news, government publications, commentaries, and scholarly articles. In addition, students will be assigned sanctions and export controls related readings such as reports by national security and foreign policy think tanks and congressional testimony by experts, government officials, and practitioners.
