Penn State Law discussion will explore military roles in justice

Penn State Law will host a discussion “Advancing Rule of Law: Military Roles in Justice” from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Apfelbaum Family Courtroom & Auditorium in Lewis Katz Hall, Carlisle, Pa., and a simulcast to the Greg Sutliff Auditorium in the Lewis Katz Building at University Park.

Professor Amy Gaudion will facilitate the discussion on the rule of law with Vice Admiral (Ret.) James Houck, Distinguished Scholar in Residence and former judge advocate general of the U.S. Navy, and Professor J.H. Nichols, rule of law professor at the U.S. Army War College's Peacekeeping and Stability Operations Institute.

The program also will feature the U.S. Army War College International Fellows. Each year, the chief of staff of the U. S. Army invites about 70 senior military officers from 70 countries to attend the U.S. Army War College as International Fellows. The year is full of studying, research and fellowship as these officers are exposed to and instructed in topics ranging from military concepts and doctrine to national and theater level strategies. 
A reception and small-group discussion with the panelists and International Fellows will follow the panel discussion in the Commons Area in Carlisle, providing an opportunity for members of the Law School and School of International Affairs communities to interact with and learn from the Army War College's International Fellows.
The event is co-sponsored by the Penn State Journal of Law & International Affairs, the International Law Society, the Carlisle Community Relations Committee and the Military Law Caucus.
