Concerning the first theme, there has been considerable debate about the focus international law teaching should take, whether it should cover international law qua international law, whether it should stress international law as applied in US courts and agencies, whether it should be cross-cultural, political, neutrally presented, value free or some combination of the above. From a curricular perspective, there has been growing discussion about requiring international law, either as a stand-alone course or as a component of another course. Other approaches include certificate programs and incorporating international law across the curriculum. The teaching methods portion of the workshop concentrates on using film and video to enhance international law teaching; using problems, simulations and clinics; and incorporating international law research into international law courses.
We ask workshop participants to bring materials with them so that we can better share information and differing perspectives. We plan to conduct the workshop in a collaborative manner.
The workshop will commence at 8:30 a.m. and will last until 5:45 p.m. For the full agenda, please click here.
