Course Description:

This course is taught at the JAG School during their 3rd quarter, January 5, 2015 - March 13, 2015. The instructors are LtCol Cherry and MAJ Berry.

This elective provides an in-depth study of the law of armed conflict, expanding upon foundations laid during plenary instruction. Discussions and readings will consider and compare U.S. and international perspectives on the LOAC including views of U.S. allies, the U.N., the ICRC and NGOs. Topics will include sources of contemporary LOAC, in-depth consideration of the principles of LOAC and targeting, issues associated with battlefield status, regulation of internal armed conflicts, the interface between the LOAC and other areas of law, enforcement mechanisms, and current topics that emerge as the semester progresses. Guest speakers will highlight the ways in which LOAC is developing in both the operational and policy realms.
