Disputes that arise between states of the world often require the work of lawyers to avert a more serious breakdown in relations, or to protect the rights of individuals whose interests are involved in the dispute. Disputes can be over a minor matter capable of quick resolution, or they can be over a long-standing issue extending well back in the history of the disputants. This course examines techniques of negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and judicial settlement for resolving such disputes. Simulations will be held of inter-state disputes, in which students will be asked to represent a state or to act as adjudicator. Simulations will be drawn from current and recent cases in the International Court of Justice in which states seek to resolve territorial and resource claims, or the consequences of armed conflicts.
