INTRODUCTION TO INTERNATIONAL LAW
(LAWG-4060) - 3 UNITS
This course surveys the basic concepts of international law. International law deals with the rules and procedures governing the relations of nation-states - and increasingly disciplines the relations between states and their nationals. The course will cover both customary and conventional (treaty-based) international law as well as other less formal ways by which international norms can be formed and enforced. The course also examines the role of states, international organizations and non-state actors in the international legal order and the relationship between international and domestic law. The course will introduce specific fields within international law, such as international human rights law, trade and investment law, environmental law and the law of war.
