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 LOAC and other areas of law, enforcement mechanisms, and current topics that emerge as the semester progresses.

COURSE REQUIREMENT: Classroom participation, in-class presentation or discussion panel/debate examining a specific topic of international law and LOAC. In conjunction with the brief, students will submit an 800-1,000 word, typed and double-spaced paper summarizing their presentation and research.
