Law TBD741 — International Law in Practice

International Law in Practice is an optional course for students conducting away field placements. Seminar classes will center around interactive scenarios rooted in the practical application of international law from the perspective of international organizations, tribunals, governments and civil society. Topics will be adjusted based on the content of field placements and may include: applicability of human rights obligations on non­state actors; inter-state disputes before the International Court of Justice; jurisdictional issues related to international criminal law; implementation of international legal instruments in domestic jurisdictions; and strategic litigation before the European Court of Human Rights and other regional bodies. Classes will center on interactive scenarios in which students inhabit the role of international practitioners. Classes will be conducted in conjunction with guest lecturers working in the relevant fields of study. The course will be taught by Asa Solway ’09, an international lawyer based in The Hague, Netherlands.

Please contact Sue Schechter, Field Placement Director (sschechter@law.berkeley.edu) before August 17, if you are interested in participating in this class and/or the away program.
