LAW - 706I Lawyering: International Law


2 unit(s)
This course explores the international law system, and in particular the human rights system, from a critical perspective. It focuses on the challenges and dilemmas faced by the different actors who participate in these systems, including victims, witnesses, judges, lawyers, and representatives of national institutions, international organizations, NGOs and civil society organizations. Over the course of the semester, students will confront realistic but simulated situations and problems faced by the different actors; and they will conduct simulated lawyering exercises assuming the roles of lawyers working for the organizations involved. This course is open only to first-year JD students.
