My initial publications were in the area of “Lawfare,” or how international law is used as a supplement to military policy. Subsequent research took a turn to the domestic where I presented and published on  “Making the ‘Oral Argument’ for Conflict Resolution” and other innovative teaching techniques.  I conducted research for a comparison of the Taft Supreme Court with that of the Roberts Court and the difference in their interaction with the other branches of government.
