Welcome - International Law LAWS 2012   International Law
Public international law is about global governance and the way the legal relations of states and the individuals who compose them are regulated. The course begins by exploring the foundations of the international legal system, the legal status of the principal participants and the methods of creating and applying international law. Processes of international dispute resolution and the interaction of international and Canadian law are also discussed. Later, the application of substantive principles of international law are considered in a couple of selected areas such as law of the sea, international criminal law, the protection of human rights and the use of force.
