Course Description:

This course is taught at the JAG School during their 4th quarter, March 16, 2015 - May 21, 2015. The instructor is LtCol Cherry.

International and operational law has played a significant role in recent events across the globe. Incidents in locales such as Ukraine, North Africa, and Syria have mobilized the international community from both an operational and intellectual perspective. Using these incidents as backdrop, while also considering historical examples, students will gain a greater understanding of the worldwide legal implications of international and operational law and be encouraged to challenge the interpretation and application of those laws. In addition, the course will enable students to participate in academic discussion related to current events and be provided the opportunity to analyze developing crisis in the international community. Topics discussed will include piracy, Mexican drug cartels and U.S. national security, China's growing presence in international waters, the future of the Arab spring, and the intersection of transnational crime and the LOAC.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS: Class participation and an 800-word newspaper style opinion-editorial (op-ed) article
