International Law and International RelationsThis two-credit seminar will provide a survey of state-of-the art scholarship in the fields of international law and allied disciplines. After a session devoted to an introduction to international law research and scholarship, we will read and discuss a dozen recent papers written by prominent scholars of international law and allied disciplines. There will be a final wrap-up session.
Additional information: Each student will write reaction essays of roughly 1,000 words each summarizing and critiquing six of the presented papers. There is no final examination or paper. LLM and JD students are welcome. Students may write longer papers in conjunction with the seminar to satisfy the writing requirement (for an additional credit); those students who choose to do so must still write the six reaction essays.
