Exam Type: Any-Day Take-Home
This course explores law’s role in global affairs. We will examine the history of ideas, legal doctrines, institutional and administrative structures intended to organize and legalize international economic and political life. The readings will provide a common background for exploring and comparing efforts both to remake the world and re-imagine law. As we analyze our inheritance from that tradition, we will assess recent efforts to rethink law’s role in light of twenty first century political, economic and cultural challenges.
