International Law, Prof. Alexandra Huneeus: 

First, look at your Dunoff, Ratner, Wippman textbook and go over the table of contents.  Then, read pp. 1-10; 14-16 (top); and 22-31.  For this assignment, you do not need to take notes.  This reading is meant to give you a broad overview -- a sense of the field.  So read thoughtfully, but not as you would, for example, to prepare for an exam. 

Second, see if you can find examples of international law in current events, or even in recreational events you undertake between now and our first class.  Does international law ever appear in the front page of your newsfeed?  Come prepared to share.
