This workshop will engage with cutting edge scholarship in the field of international law, focusing in particular on current challenges to the international legal order. About half of the workshop sessions will feature a leading international legal scholar presenting a work-in-progress. For the other sessions, participants will read cases, scholarship, and other sources addressing the subject of the upcoming papers and will discuss these materials in a standard seminar format. Students will be expected to write response papers over the course of the semester and to participate actively in discussion each week. Sessions with visiting speakers will be open to the broader academic community.
