This is a broad-ranging legal information and research blog with a mission to focus on legal stories of substantive importance rather than sensational appeal and cover both national and international legal news.
"The name Lawfare refers both to the use of law as a weapon of conflict and, perhaps more importantly, to the depressing reality that America remains at war with itself over the law governing its warfare with others." Posts cover subjects such as cybersecurity, international law as it relates to U.S. military operations, and anti-terrorism legislation from nations around the world. Bloggers Benjamin Wittes and Susan Hennessey also co-host The Lawfare Podcast.
The focus of this blog is international judicial assistance in civil and commercial cases. Specific issues covered include service of process abroad, obtaining evidence abroad for use in the United States and vice versa, and recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments and international arbital awards.
