Poses four clusters of world order problems that require students to identify and frame legal issues in factual context. Enables students to determine the relevance of information, organize relevant law and policy, test their analytical skills, and develop a critical understanding of the possibilities of international law. Focuses on the current work of the International Criminal Tribunals for the Former Yugoslavia and Rwanda. Comprises a series of hypothetical problems involving fictional countries in 'real world' decision-making settings, organized around themes that conveniently cluster the principal challenges to the current world order.
