International, Comparative, and Transnational Law - Faculty Recommendations
The core building-blocks course for study of International, Comparative, and Transnational Law is International Law in the Public Sphere (Public International Law). Students should try to take this course in their second year. Students who wish to take part in the Jessup International Law Moot Court Team are required to take the course either prior to or during their participation in Jessup.
For students who expect to concentrate on how International, Comparative, and Transnational Law affects individuals, International Human Rights is a core course. Students are recommended to take this course as well as Public International Law in order to build a firm foundation from which to pursue more specialized courses, substantive as well as clinical and skills courses, as listed below. Those students interested in social justice issues generally might wish to consult the course advising sheet "Human Rights and Social Justice Law."
For students who expect to concentrate on the business aspects (transactional or litigation) of International, Comparative, and Transnational Law, International Business Transactions is the core course. Although students are recommended take this course in addition to Public International Law, students may decide only to take International Business Transactions in order to pursue expanded core courses, such as: Conflict of Laws, International Economic Law, International Trade Disputes Seminar, International Investment Disputes Seminar, International Finance, and International Intellectual Property.
