Is it lawful for the U.S. to use Predator Drones to attack terrorists around the globe? Is it lawful for the U.S. to invade a country without U.N. approval to halt atrocities? CWRU School of Law Associate Dean Michael Scharf addresses these questions in his new book, "Customary International Law in Times of Fundamental Change: Recognizing Grotian Moments" (Cambridge University Press, 2013). He will be discussing and signing copies of his book at the Case Downtown session at the City Club on November 20.
