Drone killings, cyber warfare, and security threats in places like Yemen and Somalia will be the focus of discussions at a day-long conference sponsored by Fordham Law’s Center for National Security.

The conference keynote address, “A ‘Drone Court’: The Pros and Cons” will be delivered by Jeh Johnson, former general counsel for the Department of Defense.

Panels will bring together political and military leaders, national security and cyber experts, leading journalists, and others to provide a platform for understanding the next phase of America’s international ‘war on terror’ and, in a larger sense, the future of warfare.

They will address:
-Targeted Killing: Ethical, Political and Foreign Policy Implications
-The Laws Governing Targeted Killing and Non-traditional Warfare
-A Conversation on Cyber
-Understanding Today’s Wars

“21st Century Warfare: Law, the Enemy, and the Battlefield”
