Foreign Relations and National Security Law Seminar (3)

This course will focus on how the United States' domestic legal system interacts with international law, with particular attention to issues relating to national security. This course will examine the statutory and judicial framework underpinning our foreign relations system, including the implementation of treaties, laws of war, sovereign and diplomatic immunities, detention and surveillance powers, and domestic war powers. We will apply these statutes in the context of past events, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, detention at Guantanamo Bay, and the recent NATO intervention in Libya.
