Speaker Information
Captain Keith A. Petty
U.S. Army JAG Corps

Captain Keith A. Petty serves as a prosecutor in the Office of Military Commissions, responsible for the trial of detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. He is currently working on six active cases, most notably the pending trial of Omar Khadr.

Previously deployed to Baghdad, Iraq, for a year as a Brigade Judge Advocate, Captain Petty advised combatant commanders and soldiers on the law of war and rules of engagement. While in Iraq, he also served as a Foreign Claims Commissioner, adjudicating and paying claims for Iraqi citizens who suffered injury or property damage as a result of non-combat related activities. An adjunct assistant professor for Case Western Reserve University School of Law, he taught the War Crimes Prosecution Lab with Professor Michael P. Scharf. Captain Petty’s first experience with war crimes prosecutions came when he worked as an intern at the Trial Chambers of the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.

Captain Petty has published in the areas of national security and international criminal law. His research also focuses on human rights and counterterrorism. This year, he will receive his LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center. He earned his J.D. from Case Western Reserve University School of Law (2002) and his B.A. from Indiana University (1999). Captain Petty is admitted to the Bar in Indiana.
