The IDF aims to teach international law to all relevant military personnel. As the primary organ for implementing this policy, the IDF School of Military Law (the School) was established in 1996 by the IDF Chief-of-Staff and the Military Advocate General (MAG). In addition to training IDF MAG Corps officers, the School has an extensive program of courses for teaching military law, criminal law, and international law to IDF personnel.
The Military Law School uses a wide spectrum of means and methods in teaching the Law of War, which aim at giving an array of answers to the various needs of different military personal operating under particular circumstances. The Military Law School’s activities include lectures given at the School’s facilities and in the field, the development of computerized training software, the authoring of reading materials distributed throughout the IDF and the development of academic courses tailor-made for commanders attending other schools or training programs in the IDF.
Additionally, the IDF School of Military Law officers are responsible for the editing and publication of the law school's periodical journal, the IDF Law Review.
