  • Discusses a number of contemporary situations, such as: the law of occupation; detainment and interrogation; torture; the prospects of weaponizing space; using biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons; cyber operations; and civil-military relations during war-time
  • Focuses on the laws and restrictions under customary international law and applicable treaties in various conditions of war (within borders, with certain types of terrain, on the high seas, etc.)
