International Criminal Law & National Security
Criminal law relates to social conduct in society and the punishments associated for violating this social conduct. However, not all societies are alike and each has different definitions of what is and what is not a violation. Understanding these differences and similarities allows students to help apply and shape the field of criminal law. Although criminal codes differ around the world, there is a body of international law that has arisen to prohibit categories of conduct universally. This body of law is known as international criminal law and it prohibits genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and war of aggression.
AUWCL has partnered with several institutions to provide students with programs that will expand their knowledge and build expertise in criminal and international criminal law. Whether students practice domestically or internationally, students will acquire the knowledge and skill sets needed to succeed.
