Here are a few upcoming events—which I have added to the Lawfare Events Calendar—but to which I wanted to draw the attention of readers who might be in New York or California.
Conference on Emerging Trends in Modern Warfare
When: Fri, September 21, 9am – 3pm
Where: Seminar rooms 4 and 5 (S-4 and S-5), University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law, 3200 Fifth Ave. Sacramento, CA 95817
About: The Emerging Trends in Modern Warfare conference will consist of two panels discussing different changes that are happening in the ways the United States military operates. The first panel is going to focus on the practical operational considerations that are necessary when people from the military, law enforcement, and intelligence work together and how this convergence is actually working in the field. The second panel is going to focus on the Constitutional, International Humanitarian Law, and the Law of Armed Conflict issues that arise when these components operate together overseas.
