LAW 1716 - Transnational Law

This course introduces first-year law students to the growing reality of law practice in an era of increased global interaction and interdependence. Individuals in this globalized environment are increasingly likely to be engaged in activities that implicate more than just domestic and local law. Lawyers representing those individuals thus will be called upon to analyze and apply both international law and foreign law, or “transnational law,” to resolve legal issues for their clients. A fundamental understanding of law beyond American boundaries has become just as important as a fundamental knowledge of contracts, torts, property, criminal law, procedure, and the U.S. constitutional framework.

This course aims to provide first year law students with an ability to identify legal issues in areas of “transnational” law that they are most likely to encounter in domestic law practice. This course intentionally does not, and cannot, provide a comprehensive, in depth, survey of all international and comparative law topics. Instead, like other first-year courses, it introduces the fundamental legal doctrines and issues to begin the study of transnational law while leaving more in-depth development for upper-level elective courses in international and comparative law.
