U.S. Foreign Policy and International Law LAW-714

Students examine current U.S. foreign policy challenges and the underlying international legal issues and principles that shape them. Such challenges, including the Iranian nuclear weapons crisis, the NATO intervention in Libya and potential intervention in Syria, the war against al-Qaeda, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, will be analyzed from the perspective of international jurisprudence, evaluating how international law ultimately shapes and complicates the development of U.S. foreign policy in responding to such challenges.
