Cyberwar Games . . . In High School

by Duncan Hollis

I got my first taste of international law some 25 years ago when I joined my high school’s model UN team.  So, what does it says that today’s high school students have model cyberwar teams?  The link’s a bit short on details, but, I wonder whether they have a student playing the lawyer on each team?  I’d imagine any cyberwar scenario must trigger serious legal questions (e.g., the rules for active defense, distinction, and proportionality). Still, I’m guessing the answer is “no”.  Indeed, I’d bet the cyberwar gaming model has yet to integrate legal rules let alone norm entrepreneurs to advocate for them.  Readers with more info are welcome to weigh in.
