FLPA GERMANY LAW
From Nuremberg to The Hague

 

n2h
 


In this 4 ½ week program, students learn about the legal impact of the Holocaust and the development of International Criminal Law as a distinct field covering genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and state aggression.  Located chiefly in Nuremberg in the heart of Bavaria, resident faculty and prominent German, Dutch and American guest lecturers teach classes in the actual location that spawned the National Socialist Movement in the 1930's that gave rise to Adolf Hitler's Nazi ideology and visit the actual courtroom where Nazi leaders were prosecuted in 1945.  A half-week field trip to The Hague allows students to meet today's international criminal tribunal judges and prosecutors as well as view current trials.



LOCATION
Nuremberg, Germany; The Hague, Netherlands

DATES
July 2 - July 28, 2017

COURSES OFFERED
Your classes will be held at Erlangen University, near the center of Nuremberg's Old City. You'll take two, three-credit courses:

International Criminal Law - Taught by Professors Mike Kelly and Sean Watts, the class explores the theoretical and practical reaches of major international crimes, such as genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and aggression. Please note: You may not receive credit for this course if you have taken International Criminal Law on the Creighton campus.

From Nuremberg to The Hague - The Impact & Legacy of the Holocaust on the Law - This course, taught by Creighton Adjunct Professor Michael S. Bryant, is designed to foster a greater understanding of how traumatic events like the Holocaust impact the law and alter the trajectory of the law's development.

International Criminal Law Moot Court - Participate as a lawyer, witness, or expert in a mock court session that combines teams of American, German, and Kenyan law students who brief their cases and present arguments at the end of the semester before officials of the International Criminal Court. Oral arguments are held in Old Courtroom No. 600 in the Nuremberg Palace of Justice, where Nazi war leaders were prosecuted after WWII.
