TRANSNATIONAL CRIMINAL LAW
2010/2011, Semester 2
Modular Credits: LL4207 ( 4 ) / LL5207 ( 4 ) / LL6207 ( 4 )
Globalised criminal activity has forced states to coordinate their legal responses. This course examines the system of international and domestic laws used by states to suppress that criminality. First it examines the identification of transnational criminal threats and the development of policy in response. Then it examines the substantive crimes established through treaties. It analyses the contraband offences, crimes of violence and the concept of transnational organised crime. Finally it examines international procedural co-operation. It begins with the foundational issue of jurisdiction and then turns to the steps in that process such as mutual legal assistance and extradition.
