Mark A. Drumbl is the Class of 1975 Professor and Director of the Transnational Law Institute at Washington and Lee University Law School.

His talk is hosted by the W&M Human Security Law Center.

From his website:

In 2012, [Professor Drumbl] published "Reimagining Child Soldiers in International Law and Policy" (Oxford University Press). This ground-breaking book challenges much of conventional wisdom when it comes to preventing child soldiering, meaningfully reintegrating child soldiers, and engaging with former child solders as vibrant contributors to post-conflict reconciliation. Drumbl suggests a number of reforms to international law and policy on this most topical issue.

Professor Drumbl's first book, "Atrocity, Punishment, and International Law" (Cambridge University Press, 2007) has received critical acclaim. It rethinks -- in theory and in practice -- how individuals who perpetrate genocide and crimes against humanity should be punished. "Atrocity, Punishment, and International Law" received the 2007 Book of the Year Award by the International Association of Criminal Law (U.S. national section). In 2009, the book was recognized by the American Society of International Law as first runner-up (honorable mention) for the prestigious Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Contribution to Creative Scholarship.
