Professor Mike Schmitt, Chairman of the Naval War College's International Law Department, participated in a Feb. 1 panel discussion at Emory Law School on "Re-Conceptualizing International Law Frameworks in Response to the Threat of Cyber Warfare." Video is available here.
 
Schmitt focused his remarks on distinguishing between the various legal regimes that govern a State's use of cyber operations and on the permissible reactions to cyber operations targeted against it. Also participating in the panel were Col. Gary Brown, Staff Judge Advocate of U.S. Cyber Command, Professor Eric Jensen of Brigham Young University Law School and Professor Catherine Lotrionte of Georgetown University. Each of the participants will contribute an article to the Emory Journal of International Law.
 
 
The International Law Department is heavily involved in exploring the international law governing cyber warfare. Its annual conference, to be held this June, is focused on the subject, and the department has joined forces with the NATO School and NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence to develop courses on the subject for military and government lawyers from throughout NATO. Additionally, Schmitt is directing a three-year project sponsored by the Centre of Excellence to produce a "Manual on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Warfare." Among the 25 legal and technical experts participating in the project is Brig. Gen. (Canada, ret'd) Ken Watkin, this year's Naval War College Stockton Professor. The Manual will be completed this fall and published by Cambridge University Press. For more information on the Manual Project, see http://www.ccdcoe.org/249.html.
