Curriculum

International Law (Dehn)

 The two-credit course will examine the origins and sources of public international law, its relationship to U.S. law, and its relationship to global governance. Substantive focus will include the law of treaties, diplomatic and consular immunities, the U.N. Charter system, international criminal law, human rights law, and the use of force.

International Human Rights (Geraghty)

This one credit course serves as an introduction to international human rights law.  The course surveys international, regional and national instruments and processes for the protection of human rights, including civil and political rights in addition to economic, social and cultural rights.  The course will explore the theoretical, historical and doctrinal dimensions of human rights law and procedure, including an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of international efforts to implement human rights principles on a global scale.

International Business Transactions (Ramirez)

An introduction to the legal aspects of international business. This one-credit course emphasizes the legal problems associated with international trade in goods and foreign direct investment, and covers regulation at the private, national, and international levels.

Separation of Powers (Scalia)

This one credit course will be offered by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, with Professor Diane Geraghty serving as faculty of record and Dean Michael Kaufman co-facilitating an introduction to the course.  The course will explore the history, key concepts, and case law governing the allocation of power among the three branches of the federal government as envisioned in the U.S. Constitution.  Topics may include standing, appointment and removal powers, shared powers, and executive privilege. In preparation for Justice Scalia’s lectures, Prof. Diane Geraghty and Dean Michael Kaufman will provide a short introduction to Separation of Powers on July 1st and 2nd.
