This seminar will explore a variety of frontier issues in international law. We will cover both theoretical and practical debates in realms as varied as the NATO intervention in Libya and the responsibility to protect; the evolving nature of statehood; universal jurisdiction and extraterritoriality; and the proliferation of international courts and tribunals. Each student will prepare a final paper that will satisfy the SAW requirement; there will be no final exam. Students who have taken other international law courses here or elsewhere may email the professor to petition for admission.
