This course introduces students to public international law, the systems of norms, rules, institutions, and procedures that regulate the interaction between states as well as states and individuals. This course investigates the building blocks of international system and the forces that are transformative or destructive (or both). We will also examine and debate the role that law plays in international conflicts and some of the pressing issues affecting us today. This course also incorporates various internet technologies to arrive at a better understanding of the practice of law in an increasingly "virtual" environment.
