This course brings military officers from around the Indo-Pacific region to Australia to participate in an intensive two-week course of instruction, alongside Australian Government representatives from numerous agencies including the Attorney General's Department, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Office of the Inspector General.  

The topics covered include key legal issues such as International Human Rights Law; Gender, Peace and Security; Military Operations Law; Cyber and Influence Operations Law; Peacekeeping; Legal Interoperability; 'Grey Zone' Operations; and Maritime Law Enforcement.

This is a flagship course in Australia's military legal education program and is strongly supported by the International Policy Division of Defence.  The IPCML Director Ms Grace Corbiau and Deputy Director Wing Commander Lee Warren, along with Prof Stephens have been planning the course for some months.  

The student reaction to the course was very positive and the friendships made and connections established between all the participants has been a very welcome outcome.
