Curriculum

Law of War Seminar

Credits: 2.00
Faculty: Jack Wiener

This seminar covers the international law of war. The subject matter is also sometimes referred to as the law of armed conflict (LOAC), or international humanitarian law (IHL). This is not a course on national security law, human rights law, history, or ethics, though elements of all of those topics will naturally be touched upon. This course will focus primarily on jus in bello, law in war (battlefield law). We will focus both on armed conflicts between States and on such conflicts between States and non-State actors.

Grading and Method of Evaluation:

Letter grade only. A paper is required that may be used to satisfy the UCWR. Class participation will also be an element of the final grade.
