Cyber Warfare Law: Preparing students for 21st century challenges
Cyber Warfare Law (LAWS8035) is a postgraduate elective offered at the ANU College of Law for Juris Doctor and Master of Laws students. The intensive course is taught by Dr William Boothby, a retired UK Air Commodore who played a central role in the preparation of The Tallinn Manual on the Law of Cyber Warfare. The course explores the extent to which norms of existing law can properly be applied to cyber operations. It draws on elements of general international law, the international law that governs the recourse to armed force and international humanitarian law, all in the specific context of cyber warfare.
