NOTE: This course is taught at the JAG School during their 4th quarter, March 18, 2013 - May 17, 2013. The instructor is MAJ Johnson.
In the last decade, no source of law has made more significant contributions to the law of war than the international criminal law of armed conflict. In this course, students will survey the jurisprudence of both traditional (military commissions, courts-martial, and international tribunals) and emerging forums (International Criminal Court, hybrid tribunals, national tribunals, truth and reconciliation commissions). The course will offer opportunities for critical analysis of the often conflicting goals of justice and peace, the complexities of international and domestic jurisdiction, and the challenges of identifying substantive crimes under the law of war.
COURSE REQUIREMENT: 6-8 page paper, a short presentation of the paper, and class participation
