  • Programme

Module 1 International legal relations: contemporary perspectives (10 hours)

This course gives students the opportunity to discuss and clarify different recent issues of international law. Last year’s session (summer 2017) was dedicated to the general prohibition on the use of force in contemporary international law. It addressed the distinction drawn between legal and illegal uses of the force in recent conflicts (Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, etc.). It also analyzed the exceptions of this general prohibition, such as self-defence, the war on terrorism, and the right of humanitarian intervention. The course also considered the rhetoric surrounding the “War on Terror” initiated after the attacks of 9/11, with the aim of recognizing the possibility of acting in self-defence against terrorist groups and no longer just against sovereign States, within the meaning of article 51 of the UN Charter.

Module 2 International organizations: regional and universal issues (5 hours)

This course begins with the analysis of the main characteristics of International organizations. The universal aspect is addressed through study of the United Nations, and particularly the Security Council, and how it is meant to preserve peace, if it does indeed do so. Concerning the regional issue, the example chosen – in the previous session of 2017 – was the European Union, and the question of Brexit with the departure of the United Kingdom.

Module 3 : International litigation: current perspectives (10 hours)

This course is taught by professor Santulli, Director of the Institute and author of a leading French publication on international litigation (Droit du contentieux international, Paris, LGDJMontchrestien, coll. Précis Domat, 2d éd. 2015, 621 p.). The lectures will focus on the process of international adjudication through the study of contemporary cases. Significant litigations will be chosen to highlight the way in which modern judicial and arbitral practice deals with international procedural issues.

Module 4 Contemporary issues of international business law: commercial relations and arbitration (10 hours)

This course is taught by several experienced arbitration lawyers from the DLA Piper Paris office, led by DLA Piper’s Global Head of Arbitration, Michael Ostrove. It provides students with a practical introduction to international arbitration, covering both commercial and investment arbitration procedures. The main procedural aspects of arbitral procedure, ranging from the choice of venue to arbitrator impartiality to annulment and the enforcement of awards, are analyzed with practical examples taken both from jurisprudence as well as from the lawyer’s personal experiences.
