The Department of Defense Law of War Manual: An Assessment
Air Cdre (retd) Dr William H. Boothby presents, 'The Department of Defense Law of War Manual: An Assessment'. In 2015, the United States Department of Defense published its long-awaited Law of War Manual. The Manual deserves careful study, as it sets out the position of the Department of Defense on the law of armed conflict, including on some of the most pressing legal challenges and controversies. In this lecture, Dr Bill Boothby, one of the leading experts on the law of armed conflict, will draw on his forthcoming commentary on the Manual to offer a personal assessment of the Department's declared view as to the law that regulates the conduct of warfare. Dr David Turns will act as a discussant.
