International Criminal and Humanitarian Law (4615)

The course introduces students to the growing body of individual responsibility for the criminal acts of both governmental and non-governmental actors that have come into being following the WW-II Tribunals at Nuremberg and Tokyo. It will examine those historical experiences and the UN Ad Hoc Tribunals for Yugoslavia, Rwanda and the UN/National Tribunals for Sierra Leone, Cambodia and Lebanon...as well as the International Criminal Court, which was brought into being by the Treaty of Rome in the year 2000. The course will draw from Prof. Erlinder’s personal experience as Lead Defence Counsel at the UN Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) and as President of ADAD(Associations des Avocats de la Defense)...his own writings and pleadings submitted to the ICTR, as well as selected readings from a range of sources.
