International Criminal Law in U.S. Courts
In a shrinking world, crime increasingly knows no borders. This three-credit hour course explores U.S. criminal prosecutions of international crimes. A discussion of the jurisdictional and venue requirements for overseas crimes segues into the crimes themselves: piracy, cybercrime, international cartels and more. Special attention is paid to increased prosecutions of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act in a global marketplace. The class concludes with discussions of extradition and gathering evidence abroad.
