George Brauchler, 18th Judicial District Attorney, recently traveled to Malaysia to teach human rights-focused courses on the topics of use of force, gender violence and human trafficking.
“I have spent a career doing nearly everything in military law, and I was happy to be able to work with our partner countries on the important work of upholding the law of armed conflict,” said Brauchler in a press release. “The United States is a global democracy leader, and we are actively engaged in working with our military partners to uphold international standards.”
Brauchler participated as part of the Defense Institute of International Legal Studies. The organization within the U.S. Department of Defense has a mission of providing programs that promote the rule of law, civilian control of the military, and human rights and democracy. In addition to sending U.S. personnel overseas, the institute also hosts foreign government officials, including for a September 2019 training on U.S. maritime law enforcement rules and practices.
Brauchler is a colonel and military judge in the Colorado Army National Guard, and advertises that his is the “most veteran- and military-friendly office in government” through his hiring of service members. The 18th Judicial District covers Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties.
