In a rapidly evolving environment, the development of legal and policy parameters for governing state behavior in cyberspace-domestically and internationally-have failed to keep pace with the threat. Legal advisors charged with reviewing and advising on the legality of cyber operations are continuously called on to address difficult issues of first impression. This course identifies and considers some of the more challenging domestic and international legal issues raised by the conduct of cyber operations both in the gray zone between peace and war, and in the conduct of hostilities. The course will examine the national security implications of the emergence of cyberspace as a domain, the use of cyber capabilities and operations as new means and methods of statecraft, and the evolution of US strategy and policy before turning to a selective study of the attendant domestic and international legal and policy issues and challenges.
