LAW 507/5207 - The Law and Practice of the Settlement of International Disputes Between States (3 cr.)

  and    (prerequisites can be waived by special permission of the Law Department).

The course combines the fundamentals of the law governing the settlement of international disputes between states and a Moot Court exercise. The two components of the course are intertwined. The course thus aspires to combine theoretical and practical dimensions of the experience of international dispute settlement. The doctrinal part of the course includes a general overview of the methods for dispute settlement in public international law, and basic procedural norms and principles governing international legal proceedings. The course looks in detail at specific institutions, such as the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and others. Students will have the opportunity to study recent developments in the theory, practice and in policy debates underlying the system of international dispute settlement.
