This fall, do you plan to:
- Write a paper on an international, comparative or foreign law topic?
- Source-check foreign statutes & cases for a journal?
- Develop your knowledge about an aspect of a foreign legal system that might be of interest to a future employer, such as China’s anti-corruption laws or Canada’s anti-spam law?
If so, consider enrolling in my 7-week International & Foreign Law Research seminar, which begins on Wednesday, September 9. The main course requirement is a 15-17 page legal research memo on an international or foreign law problem of interest to you. in the memo, I ask you to use resources that we have evaluated throughout the course. Last semester, we also started a new class tradition: students read a problem prior to class, broke into class teams to conduct international law research, and then argued issues before a mock international court.
Please feel free to email me with questions about this seminar!
