This course is a follow-up to the compulsory International Law course LAWS2250 (LLB(Hons)) and LAWS6250 (JD).
Having reviewed the structure and principles of international law, this course is intended to round out the coverage of ‘general’ public international law by focusing on areas only partially dealt with in the compulsory course and which warrant further consideration in light of their importance. Coverage may consequently vary from year to year and include, for instance, the following topics: aspects of territory in international law; State responsibility, international organizations; aspects of treaty law (notably treaty interpretation); and jurisdiction. Occasionally parts of the course will consist of focused case studies of a current situation or event which raises important issues of international law.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify and explain the contextual underpinnings of the norms that have evolved in the international community in respect of the specific topics addressed in the course;
- Identify, explain and analyse the substantive norms that have been developed at the international level in relation to the topics studied;
- Identify and use a range of legally specific principles and techniques appropriate to respond to a factually complex international law problem; and
- Plan and conduct a legal research project with intellectual independence.
- A compulsory, non-redeemable, mid-semester research project (null) [LO null]
- A problem based compulsory non-redeemable end-of-semester examination (null) [LO null]
