Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this workshop, but it is generally intended for students with a strong academic interest.
Exam Type: No Exam
This workshop is intended to provide students with the opportunity to enmesh themselves in scholarly writing in the areas of comparative and international law (with more emphasis on the former), by exploring challenges scholars in these fields face and bringing to the workshop a range of scholars engaged in some of the most interesting new work in them. Generally, our invited speakers--some from law and some from other disciplines--will present work in progress. Our focus will be on the intellectual underpinnings of the fields rather than hands-on practice. Students in the class will be required to submit four brief "reflection" pieces commenting on the papers to be presented and will also have the opportunity to question the presenter during the session. Some sessions will be reserved for meetings without outside speakers.
Note: Enrollment is limited to 35 students. All students wishing to take the class -- including those on the waitlist or considering adding it -- should be sure to attend the first session. Please direct any questions to Professor Alford or Professor Rabb.
