Professor(s): Stephen Zamora (FACULTY)

Credits: 3

Course Areas: International Law 

Time: 6:00p-7:30p  MWLocation: BLB-209 

Course Outline: This seminar will focus on subjects that come under the heading of international economic law, a broad term that covers the legal aspects of the economic relations between nations involving either private or governmental actors. The term includes international trade law, international banking law, international investment law, international energy law, international intellectual property law, and other subjects that involve economic relations. We will begin the semester with two weeks of reading and discussion on international economic law. I will then work individually with students to help each student identify a paper topic; to help each student devise a research plan; and to help each student discuss the research, and to help advise on drafting an outline of the paper. I will ask for a preliminary draft of the paper to be submitted to me at least one month before the end of the semester, so that I can read and comment on the preliminary draft in a way that the student will be able to incorporate my suggestions in the final draft.
