Watching the Law (16th February) referred to how the United States is using drones to attack and eliminate particular targets. It appears that Harold Koh, legal adviser to the U.S. State Department, has argued that the use of drones has a legal basis in international law - see Wall Street Journal. Further comment on this topic may be seen at European International Law Journal Blog - here.
There are no aspects of modern life untouched by law. My main interests are criminal law, constitutional law, human rights, family law, European Union law and some aspects of international law.
In law, the word "obiter", refers to remarks which are "by the way." My own comments are also "by the way" - I write about events which happen to interest me. I do not seek to dictate or even to persuade: merely to comment and inform and this blog must never be used as a substitute for professional legal advice.
