LAW 0556: International Law
Spring 2019 • Section 21 • CRN 3109

Course Description

As the debates over the war on terror and the use of international law in U.S. constitutional interpretation illustrate, international law today is more relevant, more complex -- and more highly contested -- then at any time in recent history. This course serves as an introduction to international law. It examines the fundamentals of public international law, including the nature and structure of the international legal system, the formation and enforcement of international rules, and the use of international law in United States courts. Topics covered include the rules governing the use of force, the UN Charter, human rights and international trade. More broadly, this course explores foundational questions regarding the nature, creation, interpretation, and enforcement of law in an arena lacking centralized enforcement and judicial bodies.
