Professor Beard and Core Experts of the Woomera Manual met for the fourth plenary session/workshop of the drafting of the Woomera Manual at the University of New South Wales-Canberra, Australia.

Numerous states have now agreed to send their diplomatic and military representatives to a series of engagement sessions later this year in the Hague, Netherlands, to officially contribute their comments and views on the Woomera Manual.

The University of Nebraska College of Law is one of the four founding institutions and principal sponsors of the Woomera Manual Project. Professor Beard is a Core Expert, member of the Board of Directors, and an Editor of the Woomera Manual.
