A pre-recorded streaming VIDEO replay of one session from the May 2019 live seminar, Annual Military Law Symposium. 

Session designed by the Military Law Section of the Virginia State Bar

Using a historical case study, and based on the research of Dr. Waitman Wade Beorn in his book Marching into Darkness, designed by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies at West Point, this session explores how ordinary people placed in leadership positions during wartime balance personal and institutional perspectives on morality, law, and leadership as they decide the fate of legally protected populations. International Humanitarian Law topics discussed include: War Crimes, Geneva Convention IV Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, and the Obedience to Orders defense.
