The print edition of Volume Print-Edition-Ad4, Issue 1 is now available on and Barnes & Noble. In this issue, Major Patrick Walsh, Associate Law Professor at the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s School, analyzes a framework where national security professionals can predict changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to determine which programs are at risk of removal by future executive, legislative or judicial action; and Jesse Medlong, an Associate at DLA Piper LLP (US), uses quantum theory to examine the unique legal role of delegated authority and standard operating procedures in the military. This issue also contains two comments by George Mason Univ. School of Law students: Stephen Jackson proposes designating Mexican drug cartels as foreign terrorist organizations to facilitate prosecution; and Molly Picard examines potential civil liabilities for U.S. military personnel engaged in the cyberspace battlefield. Each copy is only $12.95 and eligible for free shipping with Amazon Prime.
