National security law is often inaccessible, and can be particularly hard to follow when divorced from the context of historical tradition, governmental structures, and the operational reality in which it functions. This course will aim to present national security law in context, exposing students as much as possible to the real-world effects of applicable legal standards and rules. Topics will include the history of the U.S. Intelligence Community, privacy and surveillance, and the role of a national security lawyer in protecting national security within the rule of law.

Attendance at the first class is mandatory for all currently enrolled and waitlisted students; any currently enrolled or waitlisted students who are not present on the first day of class (without prior permission of the instructor) will be dropped. The instructor will continue to take attendance throughout the add/drop period and anyone who moves off the waitlist into the class must continue to attend or have prior permission of the instructor in order not to be dropped.
