Law Courses (LAW)

Atrocity Law (LAW 899)

International criminal law has developed at an exponential rate. Cutting edge rulings and decisions are setting the cornerstones in international criminal law for years to come. It is a rare opportunity for teachers, students, practitioners, and policymakers to be present at the beginnings of a new area of the law. Rarer still is the opportunity for students to be able to take a seminar from one of the senior international practitioners in the field, using his work as the basis for this seminar. Drawing upon unique experiences in West Africa, a great deal of the new ideas and fresh thinking began with Professor Crane’s work as the Chief Prosecutor of the international war crimes tribunal in Sierra Leone, called the Special Court for Sierra Leone.

The seminar will use, as a case study, the entire creative process in West Africa of establishing the Office of the Prosecutor of the Special Court for Sierra Leone; from planning, preparation, and executing the many tasks necessary to prosecute war criminals in a forgotten and tragic land. Using real world and contemporary cases, vignettes, and scenarios this two-credit seminar will allow students to study and research with the practitioner who created the entire plan to prosecute those who bore the greatest responsibility for war crimes and crimes against humanity that resulted in the murder, rape, maiming, and mutilation of more than 1.2 million human beings.

Climate Change: Science, Perception, and Policy (LAW 891/ PAI 730)

This course introduces students to the challenges posed by climate change through a unique multidisciplinary exploration of the scientific, economic, policy, communicative, and even philosophical dimensions of the issue.

  • The current state of scientific knowledge about climate change.
  • The role of the media in shaping public opinion on the issue.
  • Competing discourses of climate change
  • Risk and uncertainty in decision-making.
  • Costs and benefits of different types of policies.

A research paper and oral presentation are required.

International Law (LAW 728)

This course introduces students to the basic subjects, processes, and problems of contemporary public international law. We begin by exploring the sources of this law; the traditional role of states in international law formation; and the burgeoning role of international organizations, nongovernmental organizations, and subnational municipalities in transnational legal processes.

Our attention then turns to the relationship between international law and US law, including the principles that govern (and impede) the application of international law in US courts. Rather than attempt to canvass myriad subfields that comprise contemporary public international law, we devote sustained attention to four subjects:

  1. Principles of jurisdiction.
  2. State claims to natural resources.
  3. The law of war.
  4. International human rights.

Law of Armed Conflict (LAW 840)

Any student interested in practicing national security law or going into international criminal justice must have a clear understanding of the law of armed conflict. Humanity has attempted to regulate the horror of war for centuries. This seminar will review those attempts, focusing on the modern era. Particular attention will be paid to recent challenges related to the war on terror and the ramifications for future enforcement of these key principles. The student will have the opportunity to be involved in several practical exercises that will reinforce his or her learning and to write a paper on various cutting edge issues related to the law of armed conflict. Offered by David Crane.

Law of Genocide (LAW 804)

The course is organized thematically and will cover security issues across multiple regions and time periods.

  • In the first part, the course considers how security studies has been delineated as a distinct subfield and approaches that focus on power, material capabilities, and rational choice versus those that emphasize ideas, identities, and institutions.

Social science theories underpin these different approaches. Effective practitioners need to become proficient with these analytical tools and their application. Therefore, this course has three main aims:

  • To expand familiarity with a wide range of actors and issues in international affairs.
