Abstract

While labour and employment law involves facets of both international and comparative law that are interesting and valuable, the best way to organize an advanced course for US law schools is to study both: Understanding of either is dependent on understanding both.The study of international labour and employment law at the level of the International Labour Organization (ILO) and regional international organizations such as the EU and the North American Free Trade Association (NAFTA) labour side accord take on real meaning and significance by showing their relationship with the national labour and employment laws of the major countries of the world.A unified international and comparative labour law course is an ideal way to develop and deepen the understanding that law students need to practice law in an ethical and professionally responsible way

Keywords: teaching international law, teaching comparative law, international labor and employment law
