Eligibility and Structure
For JD students, the Law School's course in Transnational Law is a co-requisite for enrollment in the foundational International Refugee Law course (LLM and doctoral students, as well as research scholars, are exempt from this requirement). The International Refugee Law course is, in turn, a co-requisite for the Program's four advanced seminars (Refugee Rights Workshop, Comparative Asylum Law, Refugee Law Reform, and the Colloquium on Challenges in International Refugee Law). Because these requirements are set as co-requisites, a student may enroll simultaneously in, for example, Transnational Law, International Refugee Law, and either Comparative Asylum Law or Refugee Law Reform. Preference for enrollment in the Colloquium will ordinarily be given to students who have completed either Comparative Asylum Law or Refugee Law Reform, as these seminars provide critical preparation for the Colloquium.
"Through Prof. Hathaway's innovative teaching, students learn the international refugee law framework as well as its historical foundations, the policy issues confronting the international community, and the human cost of dislocation."—Anne K. Cusick, '00, Attorney-Adviser, U.S. Department of State
