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; and 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. The CROL sponsors numerous Cadet development opportunities, including academic trips, summer internships (AIADs) and guest speakers throughout the year.
