Calling Domestic and Foreign Students and Practitioners: NIMJ Summer Program

Interested in military law, but you don't have a background in it?  Currently serving in a nation's military and want to know more about the US military justice system and those of countries around the world?

If so, an intensive one-week program in Washington, DC, is for you.  To learn all about military law from ten of the leading experts in the field, check out NIMJ's Summer Program.  The Military Justice Summer Program will offer a broad range of seminars on international and domestic military law.  Law students and practitioners from around the world are invited to participate.  The program focuses on important and developing issues within military law, including a number of sessions focused on national security law.  Participants learn from expert practitioners from the U.S. military, government agencies, and leading international human rights non-profit organizations. 

Students can earn 1 or 2 credits. Site visits to places such as the Pentagon (tentative) and military courts, guest lectures, and other activities will provide participants with additional learning and networking capabilities.
