Approaching Conflict with Confidence Course Series

Recording: International Law, Reconciliation and the Road to War (The Law of War)

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 12:34 PM | Kristy Rhyason (Administrator)

For our webinar luncheon on November 19, 2020, we hosted Naval Captain Bruce King. Below is the recording from that event.

Naval Captain Bruce King speaks about the laws of armed conflict relating to reconciliation, mediation and war. International law encourages the resolution of disputes between countries. Institutions like the United Nations and International Committee of the Red Cross are dedicated to identifying friction between countries and promoting peaceful resolution of disputes. Where resolution is not possible, the possibility of armed conflict looms. He focuses on the road to war and the reconciliation processes which prevent war.

A native of Edmonton Alberta, Bruce graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws in 1989. In 1990, he was called to the Alberta Bar and for the next 18 years worked as a civil litigator appearing in all levels of Courts in Alberta, the Federal Court, Federal Court of Appeal and Tax Court of Canada.

In 1999, Bruce joined the Canadian Armed Forces as a reservist with the Office of the Judge Advocate General. He was deployed on 4 domestic operations including as the legal advisor to the army at the G-8 Kananaskis conference and Vancouver Olympics. In 2010, he deployed to Afghanistan with JTF2 and 427 Special Operations Aviation Squadron. In 2012,  Bruce worked at National Defense Headquarters in Ottawa advising the commanders of the Military Police, Air Force, Navy and CAF Transition Unit. In 2017, he was promoted to his current rank of Naval Captain (Colonel equivalent) and appointed Deputy Judge Advocate General (Reserves).

Since 2012, Capt(N) has also been a sessional instructor at the Faculty of Law, University of Alberta, where he teaches Military Law.  In 2014, he joined the Veterans Affairs leading a team of lawyers and support staff representing veterans and RCMP members before the Veterans Review and Appeal Board.
