International Law

International Law
In this course, we will study the function and operation of international law in international politics. We will begin by comparing the approaches of political scientists and lawyers, scholars and practitioners, and judges and politicians. Next, we will examine several of the most prevalent international legal mechanisms that exist today, including the International Court of Justice, International Criminal Court, and the World Trade Organization Dispute Settlement Body. We will then study several of the major areas of international law, including treaties, human rights, and the use of force. Our course will culminate with a mock trial, a recapitulation of the Nuremberg Trials. (PSCI 0109 or by waiver) 3 hrs. sem. (International Relations and Foreign Policy)/
