Fall 2021 Course

International Criminal Law

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: Any Day Take-Home

International Criminal Law examines how the international legal system attempts to name and address the gravest crimes in international law. We will focus on: a) international criminal law as part of public international law, as well as a political project; b) genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression; c) perpetrators and victims of international crimes; d) domestic and international judicial enforcement, with special attention to the International Criminal Court. Through a discussion that is both doctrinal and critical, the course will seek to illuminate both the law and politics of international criminal justice and to inform its practice.
