Course description

This course is only offered in the Summer Session.

This three-part course is designed to introduce advanced prelaw students to key topics in the study and practice of law, within a global context. Its units are organized around three sets of issues. First, how do U.S. law and legal institutions relate to legal cultures from around the world; and how does one analyze different national and international legal systems from a comparative and cross-cultural perspective? Second, what is the role of constitutional law and principles both within the U.S. and globally? Third, what are the main challenges confronting international human rights, including their ability to protect traditionally disadvantaged groups such as women? Taught entirely by faculty of Cornell Law School, this course will prepare prelaw students for success in law school.
