There have been a number of articles and notes published in civilian law reviews this year about the amendment to Article 2(a)(10) that subjected civilians accompanying U.S. forces in the field during contingency operations to court-martial jurisdiction.  I don’t think we’ve noted all of them, so here’s a bibliography of those I know of:

One Response to “Civilian law review articles on Article 2(a)(10)”

  1. John O'Connor says:

    I have an article on Article 2(a)(10) forthcoming in the Tennessee Law Review. Will be out in December or January. I basically argue that the amendment is very likely unconstitutional.
