課程概述

***** This is an intensive course taking place from late May to early June in classroom1403.

This short course will give an overview of the legal regime that governs international relations. The course will first examine the nature and structure of the international legal system, focusing on the sources of law (treaty and custom), the institutions of the international system, the relationship of that system to domestic law and courts, the question of state sovereignty, and the role of the United Nations and other international organizations. The course will then explore the application of legal norms to contemporary armed conflicts and “human rights catastrophes.”
