INTERNATIONAL COURTS AND TRIBUNALS
(LAWW-4024) - 1 UNIT
The post Cold War proliferation of international adjudicatory bodies and international adjudication has had dramatic effects on both international law and politics, greatly affecting international relations, particularly economic relations, the enforcement of human rights, and the criminal pursuit of perpetrators of mass atrocities. International courts and tribunals have become, in some respects, the lynchpin of the modern international legal system. In this course, students learn about the wide and increasingly expanding array of international courts and tribunals: their functions, jurisdiction, procedure, caseload and effectiveness.
