This course will ensure a basic grounding in the methods and fundamental contents of transnational law. We shall cover three key topics: environmental law and climate change; human rights; and criminal law, as well as asking (and answering!) the question as to what transnational law is, as well as how it challenges and shapes our understandings of the nature of law.

This course will give understanding of how law operates as a tool of governance, but also as a system with its own priorities and principles. As such, it will be useful in terms of thinking about the connections between policy-making and legal reform, and well as encouraging students to think about some of the global norms which operate to constrain the actions actors in the transnational context.
