This preface to papers from the criminal law and procedure panels of the AALS Workshop on Integrating Transnational Legal Perspectives Into the First-Year Curriculum, which took place in Washington D.C. in January 2006, suggests a typology of transnational criminal matters - namely, matters of foreign criminal law or procedure, comparative criminal law or procedure, international criminal law or procedure, and extraterritorial aspects of domestic criminal law or procedure - and points readers to other publications on teaching transnational criminal matters in law school. The piece thus introduces the reader not only to the papers from the workshop but to teaching and scholarship in transnational criminal law and procedure generally.
