LAW International Criminal Activity

Prof. Jeffrey Pokorak,

3 credits day; 3 credits evening.

Enrollment in both Int'l Criminal Activity and Int'l Criminal Law Seminar is prohibited. Not offered 2012-2013.

This course will explore aspects of international criminal law, focusing on the United States' role in the legal regime. The course will consider the basis of international jurisdiction, U.S. Constitutional restrictions on extradition and rendering, money, laundering, terrorism, and the nuclear non-proliferation and nuclear weapons reduction treaties. Throughout the course we will utilize a number of sources- international conventions, treaties, international systems of criminal justice and jurisdictional cooperation, model codes and statutes, law review articles, and articles from the popular press. The goal of the course is to initiate students into the legal world of international crime; articulate how such crimes are currently detected, investigated, and punished; and generate ideas regarding how the international criminal justice system might better operate in the growing interdependent global community.
