Public International Law 2013 Fall
(PIL 2013)

The  course covers major chapters of public
international law, although it cannot touch upon all the topics of a standard
manual. Specific emphasis is given to the fundamental principles (including
debates on the use of force), the rights of the individual, (human rights,
refugee law, international criminal law), the rules of international
transactions (law of treaties, diplomacy), the settlement of disputes
(responsibility, methods of settlement, the International Court of Justice) and
the law of natural resources (freshwaters, sea, outer space).  
No legal background (general, or in public international law) is required.
