Lawfare & the Long War - on Midrats

Never in our history have we fought a war where law, lawyers, and layers of legalese have impacted all levels of the war; Political, Strategic, Operational, and Tactical.

Why do we find ourselves here and in what direction are we going?

From Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and even domestically, the legal definition of the use of military power is evolving.

Join EagleOne from EagleSpeak and me this Sunday, 22 May at 5pm EST to discuss the impact of Lawfare for the full hour with David Glazier, CDR USN (Ret.).

David is a Professor of Law at Layola Law School in Los Angles. Prior to Layola, he was a lecturer at the University of Virginia School of Law and a research fellow at the Center for National Security Law, where he conducted research on national security, military justice and the law of war. He also served as a pro bono consultant to Human Rights First.

Before attending law school, he served twenty-one years as a US Navy surface warfare officer. In that capacity, he commanded the USS George Philip (FFG-12), served as the Seventh Fleet staff officer responsible for the US Navy-Japan relationship, the Pacific Fleet officer responsible for the US Navy-PRC relationship, and participated in UN sanctions enforcement against Yugoslavia and Haiti.

David has a JD from the University of Virginia School of Law, an MA from Georgetown University in government/national security studies, and a BA in history from Amherst College
