Law and the South China Sea

Professor David Glazier

Maritime events in the South China Sea have become a recurring news topic. Regional terrain features are the subject of competing national claims. Massive land reclamation has turned minor reefs into islands complete with deep-water harbors, runways, and air defenses. A growing regional military presence, coupled with forward deployments by U.S. and other outside forces, increases the risk of accidental (or deliberate) military escalation. This talk will examine the relevant international law and will provide us with the requisite knowledge to assess for ourselves the conduct of U.S. and foreign actors.

Instructor: David Glazier is Professor of Law at Loyola Law School Los Angeles, where he focuses his teaching and scholarship on the law of war. He served for 21 years as a U.S. Navy surface warfare officer before retiring to attend law school at the University of Virginia.
