IRL405 American Military Justice in Human Rights Context Paper

Please discuss the following question:

1. Both the Jackson chapter and the Slaughter journal article address the idea of a “shift” from two systems of criminal law – purely international and domestic law – toward one system. How does a system of transnational law evolve and how close do you think we are to having a unified system? What are some of the obstacles, especially in terms of getting domestic courts to adopt the laws?

Remember to read your texts, watch the video in Course Overview, and read any other materials in Week One Lessons. Include those ideas in your discussions. Also, feel free to include a link to a website or a journal article to share with your classmates to support your views.
