LAW 6266 - Extraterritorial Jurisdiction


Credits: 2

The proliferation of legal regimes purporting to govern the same activities presents opportunities and conundrums for lawyers dealing with a wide variety of cutting-edge U.S. and/or international law issues that span civil and criminal divides (e.g., free speech on the Internet and intellectual property rights; the geographic reach of antitrust and securities laws; and laws designed to combat terrorism, child sex tourism, piracy, and international human rights violations like torture and genocide). Requires students to write a substantial research paper of publishable quality. The first part of the seminar explores recent cases and scholarship related to extraterritorial jurisdiction in order to raise the students’ awareness of the theoretical and doctrinal issues involved and to develop the students’ ability to evaluate and critique legal scholarship. In the second part of the seminar, students discuss their research proposals and works-in-progress in light of substantive and methodological insights gained from the first part of the seminar.
