Fall 2023 Seminar

International Law and Private Law: A Dialogue

Prerequisite: None

Exam Type: No Exam

This seminar will compare and contrast how international law regulates the interactions of nations with how private law regulates the interactions of persons and firms. It will thus consider, for example, analogies and disanalogies between international-law rules protecting territorial sovereignty and private-law rules protecting private property, and the legal obligations of nations and individuals to redress the wrongs they commit. Readings will include published scholarship and works-in-progress.
