Many of you may have noticed that over at CAAFlog.com, there have been no new posts in quite a while, and recently the site itself went totally blank. The reason for this is that CAAFlog.com has now moved (temporarily) to CAAFlog.org for technical reasons, and because CAAFlog’s founders asked me to take over as editor-in-chief of the website. I am a law professor at Hofstra University in Long Island, but in a former life I was a law clerk to Chief Judge Stucky and an appellate defense counsel at the GTMO commissions. My academic research focuses on substantive criminal law, especially the assessment of non-traditional criminalization institutions, such as local governments and administrative agencies.
But who I am is not really that important. CAAFlog is not a single person—it is a large community of lawyers, all interested in the rational and just development of military law. To that end, CAAFlog will now be a far more open forum for all interested voices. There is a link above for the submission of guest posts, and I invite anyone with something to say to submit the form (brevity is encouraged, meaning < 1,000 words). I am also working on installing a true Reddit-style “Forum” feature.
Beyond openness of voices, there will also be more openness of content. While we will have interns and research fellows keeping up with reporting on new developments and crunching cases as they come in, we will aim to have more higher-level analysis, and also opinion pieces.
Thanks for reading, and please click “Masthead” to see who else will be a part of the team. Best, Brenner Fissell
