Recent years have seen a rapid expansion in the international law dealing with atrocity crimes such as genocide and crimes against humanity as well as crimes committed in armed conflict. This course will study the evolution of international criminal law from Nuremberg to the present. The goals of the course are (1) to provide an overview of the main doctrines of international criminal law and procedure, including the definitions of crimes, modes of responsibility, and principles of procedure and punishment; and (2) to explore the advantages and disadvantages of prosecuting crimes of mass violence in national, international, and "hybrid" courts.
