Course Description:

This course is taught at the JAG School during their 2nd quarter, October 20, 2014 - December 19, 2014. The instructor is MAJ Pat Walsh.

Terrorism will be an enduring problem through our military careers. In recent history, the United States and other nations have used various approaches to respond to terrorism. This course will review the recent history of terrorism responses and examine the various legal frameworks that were used. The course will focus on salient terrorism incidents, provide a brief history and then discuss the legal framework used to address each incident. Topics will include: the law enforcement response (federal court prosecution), targeted killing and the AUMF, detention in Guantanamo Bay, military commissions, renditions (both ordinary and extraordinary) and others. Students will gain a greater understanding of the domestic and international legal framework that applies to our enduring efforts to defeat terrorism. In addition, the course will enable students to participate in academic discussion related to current events and be provided the opportunity to analyze what legal frameworks should be employed to respond to terrorism in the future.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS: A 1,000-word memorandum analyzing the appropriate legal response to a recent terrorist incident and an in-class group presentation examining selected recent international incidents/issues and the legal framework used to respond to those incidents.
