Class meetings will include lecture, discussion and group exercise. (Students will solve problems as purported members of the United States National Security Council and the United Nations Security Council; and resolve legal disputes between nations as purported justices of the International Court of Justice.) Each class will involve ample use of technology, e.g., PowerPoint presentations and film clip viewings.
