LAW A 576 Cross-Border and International Criminal Law

Credits: 3-4, Max 4

In our globalized world, a growing number of crimes transcend national boundaries and are perpetrated in a way that violates the laws of or affects more than one state. The objective of this seminar is to introduce students to transnational criminal law and policy as an emerging area of international law that governs and regulates trans-border criminal activities and global procedural mechanisms devised by the United Nations and member states to tackle this problem. This seminar will cover a wide range of topics related to transnational criminal law and policy including but not limited to a select number of transnational crimes (e.g.: human trafficking, migrant smuggling, corruption, terrorism, drug trafficking, and money laundering), questions of state jurisdiction, and forms of international legal cooperation (law enforcement cooperation, mutual legal assistance, extradition, asset recovery).
