First, they take up a number of questions relating to the events in Charlottesville. Was the murder an act of “domestic terrorism”?

The National Security Law Podcast: Don’t Pop the Accountability Champagne Quite Yet

In this bizarrely titled episode (OK, they pretty much all have bizarre titles), Professors Vladeck and Chesney take on four developments in national security law from the past week: Salim v.

The National Security Law Podcast: Military Commissions, Military Officers in the Cabinet, the Laws of War, and More

This week’s episode certainly has a military theme. Professors Chesney and Vladeck start off with a surprisingly (or is it disturbingly?) lengthy discussion of the writ of mandamus litigation currently pending in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals in connection with military commission proceedings. It’s like sitting in a Fed Courts class, except with worse jokes (doesn’t matter who your professor is, she or he surely was funnier than this).
