Symposium on the Feres Doctrine


Military Sexual Trauma: Is It Time to Repeal the Feres Doctrine?

Under the Feres doctrine, military personnel are banned from filing suits for harm incurred while on duty. Remarkably, the ban includes sexual assault, the rationale being that such conduct is "incident to military service." Does this policy reflect the values of the nation? Why do those who protect our collective freedoms have fewer rights than those they protect?

October 12, 2018 from 9-2 pm at Chapman Law School

The symposium will bring together the major thought leaders and scholars on both the Feres doctrine and military sexual trauma. Join us for a thoughtful analysis of the policy that governs the

country's men and women in uniform.
