 International Criminal Tribunals (Caldwell)

The course is designed to examine a variety of questions regarding the historical development of international human rights, international criminal law and the more recent creation of international criminal tribunals, particularly the new International Criminal Court. This one credit seminar course will focus on human rights violations, including genocide, torture, crimes against humanity, war crimes, waging aggressive war, and terrorism. Because of the nature of the subject, the course deals almost exclusively with developments in the law after 1945 and lead to current international crises. Students will learn, analyze and consider questions such as: How has the tribunal structure affected the development of addressing human rights violations, and will the ICC change the addressing of such violations even further? What are the flaws of the ad hoc tribunal system and can the ICC address them?

Introduction to Chinese Law and Legal System (Leonhard & Zimmerman)

This two credit course aims to provide students with an overview of the modern Chinese legal and political systems. As an economy and society in transition, China has undergone tremendous changes and is facing many challenges while it seeks to transition into a China style market economy. Our class discussion will focus on the issues that China is trying to address and the pitfalls of which international legal practitioners should be aware when representing clients doing business in China or with Chinese companies. The course consists of two components (with a little Chinese culture, language and survival tips sprinkled in as appropriate): 1. an overview of the historical foundations of Chinese law and the present legal system and political institutions in China; and 2. a brief introduction of China’s General Principles of Commercial Law.

International Art Law (Rhodes)

This course will explore the international legal aspects involved in the art industry.  For this one credit course, the materials will focus on the acquisition and ownership of art that crosses borders.  Specific questions will include commissioning works of art, acquiring works of art privately through foreign dealers or galleries, or by way of auction, and the questions of competing title that arise over works of art or cultural property proceeding from war or peace time looting.
