International Law Workshop

In Winter 2020, the International Law Workshops are generally meeting on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. in Room 1070 Jeffries Hall. Class on April 1 cancelled and rescheduled for March 31 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., location TBD.

The workshop is organized by Professor Monica Hakimi and 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.
