Judge Advocate of U.S. Cyber Command to Speak at Creighton University School of Law

Col. James G. Bitzes, Staff Judge Advocate of U.S. Cyber Command (USCYBERCOM) will present “Cyberspace Operations: Some Legal and Practical Considerations from a Military Perspective,” from noon to 1 p.m., April 1, in the Gross Appellate Courtroom (Room 124) at the Creighton University School of Law. The lecture is free to the public.

Bitzes, an Omaha native, graduated from Creighton law school in 1989. Prior to assuming his current position, he served as Staff Judge Advocate at the Air Force Office of Special Investigation in Quantico, Va.

Bitzes has also served as a deployed Staff Judge Advocate on two separate occasions: for the Combined Joint Special Operations Aviation Component in support of OIF and Operation ENDURING FREEDOM from 2008 to 2009 and for the 458th Air Expeditionary Group, Romania, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003.

USCYBERCOM is the military command responsible for planning and conducting operations in and through cyberspace to assure U.S. and allied freedom of action, deny adversaries freedom of action and enable effects beyond the cyber domain. It also directs the operation and defense of Department of Defense networks to assure secure cyber capabilities are available to support full-spectrum warfighting.

Nebraska and Iowa have approved this seminar for one hour of CLE credit. To receive CLE credit, attorneys must check in at the CLE Registration table outside the Gross Appellate Courtroom.

Parking will be available in the lot east of the Law School or the visitors’ lot west of the Law School at 24th and Cass Streets.
