    International Criminal Law (20269). 2 or 3 units. The seminar will begin with an inquiry into the goals of international justice. Do they depart from objectives of national criminal justice? Are they realistic? Do alternative responses to mass atrocities exist, or can they be developed? The sources of international criminal law will come up for examination next. Is their use compatible with the insistence of national justice systems that crimes should be clearly defined ex ante? If they are not compatible, can this fact be justified? After these general introductory themes, the crime of aggression, war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide are examined in some detail, both under the law of ad hoc tribunals and the law of the permanent interntional Criminal Court. The seminar will end with an examination of departures of international criminal procedure and evidence from the forms of justice prevailing in national law enforcement systems. Scheduled examination or paper option. Enrollment limited to twenty. M.R. Damaška.
