Today and tomorrow I elaborate on the General International Law Course for the Tallinn University students. My course bases on 5 books:
● Malanczuk, Peter. Akehurst’s Modern Introduction to International Law. 8th Edition. Routledge (The 7th Edition until the 8th appears in 2010.)
● Brownlie, Ian. Principles of Public International Law. Oxford University Press, 6th Edition, 2003
● Anghie, Anthony. Imperialism, Sovereignty and the Making of International Law. Cambridge University Press, 2005
● Guzman, Andrew T. How International Law Works. Oxford University Press, 2008
● Kiviorg, Merilin; Land, Kristi; Miil, Kärt; Vallikivi, Hannes jt. Rahvusvaheline õigus. Loengukonspekt. Tallinn, 2002
Was I proud and self-conscious … until I examined the Prof. Benedict Kingsbury’s syllabus (with references to literature) of the International Law Course at the New York University School of Law at http://www.iilj.org/courses/InternationalLawCourse.asp
The structure of that course:
Unit 7: Use of Force
Well, I would call it standard-setting. Though advanced. For the sake of development of students and science, such standard-settings and their availability are extremely important !
Although I consider the referred syllabus and sources professional, as an independent researcher, I am expected to critically analyse those. But when I read the Creative Commons I understand that I am free to Share — to copy, distribute and transmit the work, but under the following conditions – I must attribute the work in the manner specified by the author or licensor … and I may not alter, transform, or build upon this work. I cannot understand the „[M]ay not alter, transform, or build upon this work“. May it mean that if I wish to partially use that work, I must get permission from the copyright holder?
