The Barnes-Wall Foundation of South Carolina is again soliciting nominations for the following award to a deserving student:
The foundation will consider providing an award ($500.00) to the best paper on a topic related to military legitimacy.
The award is not intended to recognize a paper for academic credit in an independent study, but an award for the best paper in a class or group of 3 or more. The topic and paper should relate to legal and moral issues in military operations and/or strategy (e.g. democracy, human rights and the rule of law, and religion/cultural issues), with the winning paper being posted (with a non-exclusive right of publication, rights reserved by author) with the author’s permission on the Military Legitimacy Review (MLR) website at http://militarylegitimacyreview.com/ .
Last year’s award winner was Louis Guard, J.D., Cornell Law School ’12 for his work:
Targeted Killing and Just War: Reconciling Kill-Capture Missions, International Law, and the Combatant Civilian Framework
Military Legitimacy Review would very much hope to have your scholarly submissions to recommend for this next year and future years.
Submissions are solicited for the next year’s competition, encouraged, and accepted through April 26th, 2013.
Please contact Associate Professor of Law Kevin Govern, EIC of Military Legitimacy Review at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional details.
