Spotlight on Military Law & Veterans

In honor of Veterans Day, this week we are shining the spotlight on military law and resources for veterans.

Featured Study Aids

  • Military Law in a Nutshell
    • This study aid provides a succinct summary of military law and military justice. The new edition takes account of changes in the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ), such as, Article 2(a)(10), extending court-martial jurisdiction over civilian contractors, and cases marking its application, e.g., United States v. Ali, 71 M.J. 256 (C.A.A.F. 2012), evolving issues regarding public access to court-martial proceedings, e.g., Center for Constitutional Rights v. United States, ___M.J.___, 2013 WL 1663084 (C.A.A.F. 2013) and the impact of the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act and its amendments. As in earlier editions, the Nutshell traces the history and development of military law, its sources, the nature of military status, rights of members of the Armed Forces, and provides an exhaustive yet accessible review of the military justice process.
    • Understanding the Law of Terrorism
      • This study aid examines various subject matters—such as criminal law and procedure, constitutional law, the law of evidence, national security law, and the law of armed conflict—as the underlying legal doctrines and polices are influenced and at times distorted by counter-terrorism efforts in law enforcement, intelligence gathering, and military action.

Featured Guide

  • Veteran’s Research Guide
    • Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary marking the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11th became a national holiday beginning in 1938. There were 18.5 million veterans in 2016. There were 774,935 veterans in Ohio in 2016. This guide provides information on legal resources that can be used to research veteran’s issues.

Native American Heritage Month

Thursday, November 12, 2020

  • Native American Heritage Month: More Than A Word (Preview & discussion of film)
    • Sponsored by Taft Research Center & the UC Sports Administration Program
    • Of the Standing Rock Dakota tribe, John Little, Director of the Indian University of North America, and Kenn Little, filmaker, direct More Than A Word, offering a look inside the growing movement to change the name of the Washington R*dskins football team. The film traces origins of the word, from a term of racist derision and slander to being embraced as the name of one of the NFL’s most beloved franchises; and draws on the voices of Native American activists and scholars to place this controversy within the wider context of Native American history and racial stereotyping more generally.
