Prior to joining the faculty at Widener’s Delaware campus, Professor Holbrook worked as an associate at King & Spalding LLP in Atlanta, Georgia (2002-2004), where he concentrated on labor and employment litigation. He then served six years as an active duty judge advocate in the United States Air Force (2004-2010), litigating criminal cases and advising commanders on operations law, fiscal law, military justice, foreign claims and civil law. He deployed twice in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and served overseas as Chief of Military Justice and Chief of International Law at Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan. Professor Holbrook is admitted to practice in Virginia and Georgia.

His current research involves an exploration of the legal dialectic between hybrid legal systems and how intrastate and suprastate normative competitors generate and resolve conflict.
