Albert E. (Buzz) Scherr
Professor of Law,
In Episode 18 of the ACUNS Professional Development Podcast series, Albert “Buzz” Scherr discusses the new online International Criminal Law and Justice Program offered through the University of New Hampshire School of Law. Scherr discusses the advantages and disadvantages of teaching the program online, and looks to dispel what he believes is the stigma attached by skeptics to online degrees. He explains how this program differs from other international law courses in that it focuses on trans-national law as opposed to global international law, and is the first such trans-national law degree to be offered online. The program currently receives applications from a wide range of students who share the overall goal of looking to advance their careers by deepening their understanding of the international system.
