Policy By Other Means: A Review of DOD’s Law of War Manual

The National Security Law Journal is excited to announce its fall symposium, Policy By Other Means: A Review of DOD’s Law of War Manual. This Policy by Other Means Fall 2015event will feature three panelists: Mr. Matthew McCormack, Associate General Counsel from the Department of Defense; Dr. Nicholas Rostow, a Distinguished Research Professor from the National Defense University; and Mr. Tom Bowman, National Public Radio’s Pentagon reporter.

Although all of the branches have individually published pieces on the laws of war in the past, DOD has never before published a department-wide, comprehensive law of war manual. The panel will discuss the novelty of, and current controversy surrounding the unprecedented publication.

This event will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, November 16, 2015, at the Arlington Campus of George Mason University. Refreshments will be provided during check-in, which will begin at 6:00 p.m.

Registration is complimentary, but space is limited, so advance registration is encouraged.
