The paper should be an analytic Case study of international law’s role in a political dispute. Disputes need not have been “resolved” to be studied. Case studies chosen could involve disputes over Legitimacy of states, Territorial rule, the Use of force, Law of the Sea, Environmental Law, Humanitarian Law, International economic law, and many more. The coursebook comprises a list of countless international law case studies. The final paper should be 8 to 10 pages, not including references. Grades will be calculated upon the quality and clarity of the content. The paper assignment will be actively constructed throughout the course with several opportunities to receive feedback from the instructor.
