Amos N. Guiora is professor of law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law and director of the Institute for Global Security Law and Policy. Professor Guiora teaches and develops courses on the legal and policy aspects of National Security Law and Counter-Terrorism that incorporate scenario-based instruction.

As a Lt. Colonel, Guiora served for 19 years in the Israel Defence Forces Judge Advocate General Corps, where he held a number of senior command positions, including Commander of the IDF School of Military Law, Judge Advocate for the Navy and Home Front Command, and Legal Advisor to the Gaza Strip. He had command responsibility for the development of an interactive software program that teaches soldiers and commanders a code of conduct based on International Law, Israeli Law, and the IDF code.

During the course of his military service he was involved in a number of important legal and policy-making issues, including the capture of the PLO weapons ship Karine A, implementation of the Gaza-Jericho Agreement, Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, and the "Safe Passage" between the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.

Please join us as we welcome Professor Guiora. Light refreshments will be served.  This event is being cosponsored by the Jewish Law Students Society.
