This course will provide a general introduction to the issues of international criminal law, including the problems of jurisdiction, extradition, and the role of international criminal courts. The perspective will be that of a criminal lawyer rather than an international lawyer, with the primary concern directed to issues of legality and due process. The issues of criminal responsibility for war crimes, genocide, and crimes against humanity will be analyzed critically and comparatively, with primary attention given to the problem of philosophical and legal foundations of international criminal liability.
