West Point Center for the Rule of Law (CROL)
The West Point Center for the Rule of Law (CROL) plays a vital educational role in promoting respect for the rule of law—during peacetime and armed conflict. The CROL's mission is three-fold: to educate and imbue future leaders of our Army and nation with both a sophisticated appreciation for the rule of law as a central tenet of professional military ethic and a deep understanding of its principles; to inspire and contribute meaningfully to innovative, national and international legal debate and policy development; to position West Point, as the premiere institution in the world for both academic excellence and military leadership, as a leader in promoting the rule of law

Prof. Margulies is an amicus curiae scholar who submitted a brief to the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of Trump v. Hawaii, which addresses the President’s September 2017 travel ban on nationals from Chad, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Syria, Yemen, and Venezuela.
