This summary, prepared by Prof. George Grafton Wilson, of Brown University, the lecturer on international law, of the discussions of the international law situations submitted to the conference of 1907 is published for the information of the naval service.
The situations were formulated by Professor Wilson in consultation with the president and staff of the Naval War College, and were discussed by them and the officers composing the conference as fully as the time at their disposal would permit. It is the aim of the War College to direct discussion to situations that may arise with reference to which the law and precedents are not obvious or well settled, and suggestions from officers of the service are invited.
