Additional Course Details: 

International Law

This course discusses the foundations and major aspects of international law. Using primary and secondary sources and a historical approach, the course aims to familiarize students with the basic structure and concepts of modern-day IL. Along the way, we will ask how fundamental questions about law in general do or don't apply to IL. Is IL law? Is it primarily aimed at achieving justice, or establishing order? Does it restrain those with power, or enable them?

Note: This course satisfies the Justice Studies WI requirement as well as the capstone requirement for the Justice Studies Dual Major.
