On 12 December 2016, Adelaide Law School’s Research Unit on Military Law and Ethics was pleased to host a public lecture by Mr Ryder McKeown, a visiting Canadian scholar.  His talk on Legalpolitik: legalised realism and a theory of international lawpower explored how international law is used as a form of power in its own right.  He argued that international law should be considered a strategic domain akin to sea, air, land, space, and cyberspace, bringing with it significant implications for both theory and strategy.  The talk was highly engaging and informative and generated significant interaction from the audience of 80+ people during question time following the talk.  Ryder’s visit to Adelaide Law School was partially funded by an Aim for the Stars grant from the Faculty of the Professions.
