Fall 2023 Course

Law in Global Affairs

Prerequisites: None

Exam Type: Last class 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 political and economic 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.
