The course will explore how the various treaties underlying these three regimes relate to one another, with a particular emphasis on dispute settlement. In this context, the seminar will examine conflict of norms and hierarchy issues, as well as interpretative tools to prevent or minimize conflict.

The course addresses cutting-edge questions in the field, including protection of natural resources through unilateral trade-based measures, the legality of multilateral environmental agreements employing trade measures, utilization of science-based trade tests, and environmental impacts of foreign investment liberalization. The course analyzes all the major junctures in the evolution of this area of the law, including the tuna/dolphin, shrimp/turtle, asbestos, beef hormone, and genetically engineered food and crop cases, as well as investment disputes under NAFTA. Students will be exposed to the major international trade agreements and institutions, such as GATT, NAFTA, the World Trade Organization, and the draft Multilateral Agreement on Investment, in some detail.

Under the umbrella of sustainable development, the course brings together the points of contact between three areas of international law, namely investment, human rights, and the environment, which together form one of the most dynamic areas of international environmental advocacy today. The course will explore how the various treaties underlying these three regimes relate to one another, with a particular emphasis on dispute settlement. In this context, the seminar will examine conflict of norms and hierarchy issues, as well as interpretative tools to prevent or minimize conflict. Besides these theoretical inquiries, the course will cover particular themes where human rights, environmental, and investment law interact, such as: the right to health, the right to water and sanitation, due process and denial of justice, property rights and expropriation, and stabilization clauses and positive human rights obligations. The course will place special emphasis on bilateral investment treaty negotiations, as well as on international investment arbitrations involving health, safety and environmental measures.2.00000000000000GP0|#9e96459a-64af-416b-93fb-c5459be64d5c;L0|#09e96459a-64af-416b-93fb-c5459be64d5c|ELC Summer Session;GTSet|#cbbd7cb7-f9db-41d7-8603-54518e246b51GP0|#1f619b75-4196-475c-9168-dbd500d3d001;L0|#01f619b75-4196-475c-9168-dbd500d3d001|International Law;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#db2210a7-625b-4bb0-9545-56e81bdfe48aGP0|#02a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69;L0|#002a64ecc-8b08-4637-b4c1-74446f866f69|Lecture;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#6e96bd23-dbd4-4d09-9c3e-0aa09c84b5669:00AM - 12:00PM1531

The course begins with a brief examination of the traditional Chinese legal system and an evaluation of China's legal reform before the establishment of the People's Republic of China and in the post-Mao era. The course will then give an overview of China's political system, sources of law and law makings, and the key areas of Chinese law, including criminal law, constitutional and administrative law, civil law and environmental law. A major focus of the course will be the ways in which Chinese law and legal institutions have evolved since the beginning of the reform era in the late 1970s, and the major challenges faced by the legal system today.  Topics to be covered include the formal legal system and its operation in practice; how China's legal system is addressing environmental challenges; and the role of judiciary and legal profession.<br> <br> This is a 2-credit seminar taught in compressed format in seven modules during five Friday afternoon.  Our goals are to (1) study Chinese law within its cultural and historical context; and to (2) refine research, writing, and discussion skills.   A short substantial research paper and class participation are required.  Topics must first be approved by the instructor. Students are required to schedule at least two meetings with the instructor, first to discuss the topic and the research plan for the paper, and the second to discuss the first draft of the paper.<br> <br>Method of evaluation:  Class participation (40%) and a short paper as a final exam 60%).<br>*Students who wish to satisfy their AWR requirement by writing a paper on a selected topic of International Regulation of Trade may do so with permission of the instructor.</div>2.00000000000000GP0|#1f619b75-4196-475c-9168-dbd500d3d001;L0|#01f619b75-4196-475c-9168-dbd500d3d001|International Law;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#db2210a7-625b-4bb0-9545-56e81bdfe48aGP0|#ba6a8949-beed-47cf-98c0-e2b6c177ad23;L0|#0ba6a8949-beed-47cf-98c0-e2b6c177ad23|Seminar;GTSet|#f0004912-346b-4cda-81c5-04ab1bb4b34e;GPP|#6e96bd23-dbd4-4d09-9c3e-0aa09c84b5661598
