Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This seminar will first examine the many meanings of globalization through a set of readings designed to introduce students to the legal and law related literature in this field. In so doing, we shall assess the impact of global processes on international and domestic law, generally, noting, for example, the rise in importance of non-state actors in international legal arenas and the increasingly significant role played by private actors in the provision of domestic social services. After several introductory classes devoted to the globalization literature, this year's seminar will then focus especially on two perceived externalities of globalization: poverty and democracy deficits. What is the relationship of globalization to growing wealth disparities among citizens within countries and wealth differences between developed and developing countries? Has globalization increased wealth dramatically for some but not for others? What is the relationship of globalization to democracy in the U. S. as well as in other established and emerging democracies around the word? In this respect, how does the increasing role of non-governmental actors in policy matters affect democracy and the role of citizens? How does the role played by central banks in various countries affect democracy? The seminar will conclude with a study of citizenship in a global context. Students' grades will be based on their participation and their presentations in this seminar, as well as the major research paper they will write in this seminar. Students will be encouraged in their papers to suggest and draft the language necessary to make constructive reforms at various levels of government#domestic or international#and to help create a new legal architecture for the future.
