International law and international relations are often considered separate and distinct disciplines of study. And yet both are primarily concerned with the same subject matter – namely, understanding the behavior of states and other international actors. This course examines various jurisprudential and political theories, and, in particular, the unique approach each takes toward examining and explaining international law. Through this interdisciplinary engagement, the course strives to bridge the gap between the two disciplines and establish a better understanding of international law and the role it plays in addressing global challenges.

There will be a strong emphasis on academic writing

Sophomores, juniors, or seniors
