NIMJ & Armed Forces Law Society Invite You to Justice in War — March 10, 2022

Join Professor VanLandingham, the National Institute of Military Justice, and Southwestern Law School’s Armed Forces Law Society for a special webinar on Thursday, March 10th, at 4:00 p.m. PT to explore the court-martial of former Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher. 

Thursday, March 10, 2022,
4:00 - 6:00 P.M. via Zoom
1 hour of CLE credit
*.5 hours qualify for Ethics CLE

We will be joined by panelists Chris Czaplack, the original lead prosecutor in the case, and Josh Vriens, one of the decorated military witnesses, as they have a conversation about the importance of the laws and customs of war, and the pursuit of justice in the hardest of circumstances.  

Our panelists will explore:

  • Whether this case frustrates battlefield accountability by deterring service members from reporting war crimes.
  • Whether the military justice system is so irreparably flawed that it should be replaced by the federal civilian criminal justice system.
  • If the rule of law can be shielded from presidential interference even though they sit as the commander-in-chief?
