The Program's Purpose

The Program in International Law seeks to foster a sense of community among those students and faculty at the University of Virginia School of Law who are interested in international law. The Program, funded by the Law School and directed by Professor John Setear, seeks to foster this sense of community by:


Speakers

Generally

The Program in International Law seeks to bring to the Law School speakers of general appeal to those students and faculty with an interest in international law.  The Program emphasizes speakers with practical experience in formulating international law and policy.  The Program typically seeks the co-sponsorship of the J.B. Moore Society for International Law, the student international-law society, for all of the Program's speakers.

 

2000-2001 Academic Year

The Program has not chosen its speakers for the 2000-2001 Academic Year.  Please feel free to e-mail Professor Setear with suggestions.

You may wish to view list of speakers and topics for the 1998-1999 academic year or for the 1999-2000 academic year.   In 1998-99, the fall's speakers focused on the transition from authoritarian rule to democratic rule in the wake of widespread human-rights abuses, and on the interaction among law, force, and arms control.  The spring's speakers focused on international trade law.  The speakers in 1999-2000 focused on international environmental law.

Generally

The Program’s second method for fostering a sense of community among those at the Law School who are interested in international law is to make on-line information available that is of particular interest to Law School students studying international law.

The Program has built (and maintains) a set of highly organized pages of links for students conducting research on international legal topics who wish to examine the international political context and historical background of their topics.

The Program has also converted a print brochure entitled International Law at the University of Virginia School of Law into an on-line brochure describing the Law School's internationally oriented faculty, courses, and programs.

 

2000-2001 Academic Year

The Program intends to place on-line a variety of materials related to a seminar held at the Law School during the 1998-1999 academic year entitled "International Law and the Nobel Peace Prize."  The goal of this project is to allow those considering application to, or attendance at, the University of Virginia School of Law to see some of the inputs and outputs of a law-school seminar.

The Program also intends to place on-line extensive annotations of several dozen of the links on the Web pages intended to assist students researching international legal topics.
