Jeffrey Addicott, a nationally recognized expert on terrorism and national security law, will speak to STAR Republican Women March 17 at our General Meeting at Quail Point Lodge. The SRW meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. after a complementary lunch beginning at 12:30 p.m. Members and guests are welcome.
Addicott is a Distinguished Professor of Law and the Director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary’s University School of Law in San Antonio.
As an internationally recognized authority on national security law, terrorism law and human rights law, Professor Addicott lectures and participates in professional and academic organizations both in the United States and abroad. He is also a frequent contributor to national and international news shows, including FOX News and MSNBC.
Periodically, Addicott and the Center for Terrorism Law hosts public seminars at St. Mary’s University, including one in February on “Domestic Jihad & ISIS Seminar Part II: Understanding ISIS and the Radical Islam in the United State and Abroad.” In an interview with a San Antonio television station after the recent seminar, Addicott commented about terrorists in San Antonio: “This is the tip of the iceberg. For every one individual that you have that’s convicted of material support, membership in Hezbollah or Hamas, there’s dozens more that are there and they’re biding their time.” He encourages everyone to be aware of your surroundings, noting that “The first line of defense is awareness.”
After twenty years of active duty in the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps, Addicott retired in 2000 at the rank of Lt. Colonel. He spent a quarter of his career as a senior legal advisor to the U.S. Army’s Special Forces.
Among his many contributions to the field, Professor Addicott pioneered the teaching of law of war and human rights courses to the militaries of numerous nascent democracies in Eastern Europe and Latin America. For these efforts, he was awarded the Legion of Merit, named the “Army Judge Advocate of the Year,” and honored as a co-recipient of the American Bar Association’s Hodson Award.
