Notes

This course is designed to convey an understanding of international criminal law. It will review all aspects of international criminal law from substantive international crimes to criminal liability and sentencing by domestic and international tribunals. International criminal law is a relatively new branch of international law. During and after WWII, the world community developed international criminal law that punishes international crimes such as war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes against peace, and genocide. The experience of the International Criminal Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR), and the activities of International Criminal Court (ICC) and other forms of tribunals have greatly enriched the substantive law and procedure of international criminal law. It is now considered an indispensable part of international law. Through this course, students will acquire knowledge of international criminal law and will have opportunity to follow the on-going activities of the international tribunals.
