David Jeremiah Barron Judge
Barron went to Harvard Law School college as an assistant professor in 1999 and became a professor in 2004. He left the faculty upon his confirmation to the Court of Appeals in 2014.
In 2009, while on leave from his college position, Barron rejoined the Office of Legal Counsel as Acting Assistant Attorney General. In 2010, he authored a secret memo that provided the legal foundation for President Obama’s unprecedented decision to order a drone strike on Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen who was a radical Islamic militant living in Yemen.
Barron’s memo was described by The New York Times Editorial Board as “a slapdash pastiche of legal theories some based on obscure interpretations of British and Israeli law that were clearly tailored to the desired result.”
A lawyer for the ACLU described the memo as “disturbing” and “ultimately an argument that the president can order targeted killings of Americans without ever having to account to anyone outside the executive branch.”
For Barron’s service, he received the National Intelligence Exceptional Achievement Medal from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, as well as the Secretary of Defense Medal for Outstanding Public Service. Barron returned to the Harvard Law School faculty in 2010 and was named the S.
William Green Professor of Public Law in 2011. In 2012, he was appointed by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education and the Massachusetts State College Building Authority. He left academia in 2014 after his confirmation as a federal judge.
Barron is known for coauthoring with Martin S. Lederman a Harvard Law Review article titled “The Commander in Chief at the Lowest Ebb – Framing the Problem, Doctrine, and Original Understanding,” which was an attack of the advice given by the Office of Legal Counsel to President George W. Bush justifying Bush’s use of executive power during the War on Terror.
In 2016, Simon & Schuster published his book Waging War: The Clash Between Presidents and Congress, 1776 to ISIS. In February 2017, Barron was named the winner of Norwich University’s 2017 Colby Award, which is awarded for works that make major academic contributions to the understanding of military history, intelligence activities, and foreign relations.
