An Interdisciplinary Approach to Teaching International Law: Using the Tools of the Law School Classroom in Political Science
Zartner, Dana
PS: Political Science and Politics, v42 n1 p189-195 Jan 2009
As the world has grown more interconnected, many political science programs have added courses on international law, international organizations, the laws of war and peace, international human rights, and comparative judicial politics. While in many cases these are relatively new offerings within international studies, all of these subjects have long been part of the law school curriculum. There is, therefore, a long pedagogical history to be examined in terms of the techniques and content used in law schools to teach these courses. This paper examines a number of these techniques and discusses how they may be used in political science courses to enhance student learning opportunities.
