David Schlueter is a retired US Army Judge Advocate General with a storied career in the practice of law; here is a sample of David’s bio (lifted from the St. Mary’s School of Law website: “Schlueter received his B.A. degree from Texas A&M University in 1969 and his J.D. degree from Baylor University School of Law in 1971. In 1981, he received his LL.M. from the University of Virginia. He served on active duty as an Army JAG Corps officer from 1972 until 1981 and, during that time, served as an appellate counsel at the Army’s Government Appellate Division as Chief of Criminal Law at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, and as a faculty member in the Criminal Law Division at the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s School in Charlottesville, Virginia.” You can David’s entire bio HERE
Lisa Schenck is also a retired US Army Judge Advocate General (I lifted this from her bio page on th GWU Law School website): “Associate Dean Lisa M. Schenck oversees the adjunct faculty members at GW Law and is the Program Director for the National Security Programs which includes LLM Programs for U.S. Foreign Relations Law and Cybersecurity as well as the Cybersecurity MSL Program. She also teaches military justice as a professorial lecturer in law. Dean Schenck joined the law school in 2009 after serving in the Army for more than 25 years, initially as a Signal Corps Officer and then as a judge, lawyer, and educator in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps.” You can Lisa’s her entire bio HERE
When people like David and Lisa do scholarly work… you’d be a fool not to take note. I saw this piece on the website “The Hill” which made me reach out to David and Lisa:
Since I now read footnotes… that article took me to this article in the Gonzaga Law Review:
- National, Military, and College Reports on Prosecution of Sexual Assaults and Victims’ Rights: Is the Military Actually Safer Than Civilian Society?
And David forwarded me this article that is their most recent piece, appearing in the NYU Journal of Law and Liberty:
- Taking Charge of Court-Martial Charges: The Important Role of the Commander in the American Military Justice System
Since this was a perspective I HAD NEVER HEARD BEFORE… I thought we should have David on (Lisa could not) and talk about it.
