International Criminal/Civil Practice and Procedure (2 cr)
LAW 872
International Criminal/Civil Practice and Procedure prepares a student for the real world of practicing before international criminal courts and federal district courts related to human rights violations, as well as seeking redress before other world judicial bodies to include the International Court of Justice and the various regional human rights courts. This seminar will be an intensive study of case studies taking the student from initial allegations of war crimes or crimes against humanity, developing an investigative plan, drafting of indictments, preparing pre-trial motions, preparing for trial, and trial practice. Ancillary considerations related to civil suits before regional human rights courts and US federal district courts will be studied as well. The student's written work product and presentations will form the basis of the grade at the end of the course.
