Prior to entering law teaching, Mr. Drumbl was judicial clerk to Justice Frank Iacobucci of the Supreme Court of Canada. His practice experience includes international arbitration, commercial litigation, and he was appointed co-counsel for the Canadian Chief-of-Defense-Staff before the Royal Commission investigating military wrongdoing in the UN Somalia Mission. Professor Drumbl has served as an expert in ATCA litigation in the U.S. federal courts (expert for the successful plaintiffs in Almog v. Arab Bank, 2007 WL 214433 (E.D.N.Y., 2007)) and in U.S. immigration court.
Mr. Drumbl has published numerous critically-acclaimed legal articles regarding human rights abuses and international humanitarian law. His current scholarly project examines the challenges in reintegrating child soldiers who have been implicated in acts of mass atrocity. This book, entitled Reimagining Child Soldiers in International Law and Policy, will be published by Oxford University Press early in 2012.
