Just in time for your weekend entertainment, NSL Podcast is back with a new episode. This time the show was recorded live before a (Zoom-based) audience of Texas Law alumni, which made for a nice change of pace! Tune in as co-hosts Steve Vladeck and Bobby Chesney discuss and debate:

  • War Powers reform: whither the 1991, 2001 and 2002 AUFMs? Might there even be agreement on how to handle “associated forces” in a 2001 AUMF reform package?
  • The Tsarnaev (Boston Marathon bombing) case: SCOTUS has granted cert on the jury issue, but will the Biden administration still pursue the death penalty in general?
  • Court martial jurisdiction
  • Judicial deference on security matters—including IEEPA and Communist Chinese Military Companies (CCMC) designations
  • The Fourth Circuit reinstating the jury’s decision convicting a man of acting as an (unregistered) foreign agent for Turkey
  • An extradition of a North Korean citizen … how’d that happen?
