LAW 691 - Advanced Applied International Research


Spring Credits: 2 Christie Warren

After receiving training in International and Comparative Legal and Policy Research, students will be divided into small teams and assigned to work directly with international projects working in developing and post-conflict environments. As requested by project managers, research teams will conduct comparative legal and policy research used to support development and peacebuilding strategies. Participating projects may be located in countries such as Cambodia, China, Uganda, South Africa, Kyrgyzstan and the Hague. Students will be individually assigned to one of the participating organizations and will receive research assignments directly from field supervisors. Over the course of the semester each student will generate 15 to 20 pages of research to be reviewed and graded by Professor Warren before being turned in to field projects. Students interested in participating must apply directly to Professor Christie Warren at cswarr@wm.edu. Please submit a cover letter explaining your interest and any international or comparative coursework you have completed along with a current resume.
