This program will focus on the Alien Tort Statute (ATS) as a tool for seeking accountability for serious human rights violations, particularly in light of the Supreme Court's decision in Kiobel v. Royal Dutch Petroleum. Participants will receive a grounding in the ATS, domestic accountability mechanisms, and the interplay between the ATS and foreign courts.
