REGULATION AND GEOGRAPHY
2018/2019, Semester 2
Modular Credits: LL4243V ( 5 ) / LL5243V ( 5 ) / LL6243V ( 5 )
This seminar explores how different aspects of physicial and social space (ie, geography) influence the efficacy of different kinds of law and regulation. Such understanding is especially useful for explanding one’s understanding of the relationship between law and economics, law and development, and law and society. It is also relevant to issues of public international law, transnational law, human rights law, public law, and comparative law. A significant portion of this seminar is devoted to helping students identify and develop research projects, and write academic-quality research papers. This includes individual meetings with the instructor, and class discussion on doing research papers.
