Law and Globalization (21508). 2 units. The Law and Globalization seminar is an ongoing Yale Law School colloquium series for the discussion of recent scholarly research on legal aspects of globalization, broadly conceived. The focus of the spring 2015 edition will be new research on international courts. We will host six scholars who will present works-in-progress on the law and politics of international adjudication. On off-weeks, we will read and discuss texts selected by our visitors in preparation for their visit. Requirements include: (1) full participation in the seminar, including circulating two short (two-page) discussion papers on the readings; and (2) the writing of either one 25-to-30-page research paper on a topic relevant to law and globalization or three 8-to-10-page essays responding to the papers being presented in the seminar. Students may earn additional credit if they wish to produce a major research paper. The seminar may be repeated for credit, with permission. Paper or literature review required. Enrollment limited to twelve. A. Stone Sweet and C. Landfried.
Note: Attendance at the first class meeting is required. Any accepted student who does not attend the first class meeting will be dropped from the course and places will then be offered to students on the waiting list.
