Uitgebreide vaknaam Research seminar International law
Leerdoelen The primary goal of this course is to train the academic, research and writing skills of students. After successfully completing this course, students will be able:

- to find relevant sources;
- to create a research outline;
- to write and structure an essay;
- to answer legal questions and analyse legal issues related to current events;
- to correctly apply footnotes with proper references and cross-references;
- to create a bibliography.

Students will also be required to give an oral presentation.

The secondary goal of this course is to give students a better insight into the workings of international law and its application in practice. The content of the course will build on the Introduction to International and European Law and Public International Law courses. Topics of this latter course will be incorporated, in some way or another, into the research seminar. (It is possible that subjects do not correspond entirely, however both courses have been so organized as to complement each other.)
Omschrijving Sessions will be organized to deal with specific topics or problems, if possible in relation to current conflicts or controversies. Students will have to write various short papers and also at least once prepare a presentation about a legal subject or question, and active participation is required in the sessions.

Attendance of all sessions is compulsory. This means absence from a session is only excused in case of exceptional circumstances in the nature of actual and proven (medical) emergencies. Absence from a session that cannot be excused in the manner indicated above will result in a deduction of points from your final grade.

In addition, please register carefully for participation in a particular working group, as no switches will be allowed between working groups throughout the course.
