LLB141 Introduction to International Law

There are many ways in which the law operates in an international context. Issues of global concern such as climate change, terrorism and economic development require cooperation between nations through agreements and treaties. The increased internationalisation of communication, financial interests and business transactions means that individuals and companies are increasingly required to engage with the laws of other countries and that domestic legal systems must operate in an international context.  In an increasingly globalised world it is important for you to understand how to identify, evaluate and apply the relevant law in international disputes and how international laws can impact on the Australian legal system.  This unit builds on your knowledge of the Australian legal system introduced in LLB101 and extends it to the impact of other legal systems on the development of Australian law.
