LAW 298 - International and Transnational Criminal Law

In this course, we will study international and transnational crimes (such as crimes against humanity, genocide, war crimes, corruption, narcotics and money laundering, piracy, and torture); the principles of jurisdiction that may be use to prescribe, adjudicate and enforce these crimes; enforcement mechanisms of these crimes (including the International Criminal Court and transnational prosecutions); and the logistical and procedural challenges involved in the prosecution of these crimes (such as extraterritorial application of U.S. constitution, extradition, abduction).
