upcoming event: ABA Standing Committee’s

June 7, 2010

* ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security, “Seminar on Teaching National Security Law” (October 2, 2010, at National Defense University)

From the attached announcement:

Dear Colleague:

The ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security is hosting a one day seminar on the pedagogy of teaching national security law. The purpose of this seminar is to bring together the academic, educational, and instructional communities from our nation’s law schools, educational legal centers, military legal training institutions, military academies, and the National Defense University to discuss the methods, tools, and processes of teaching national security law. This Seminar will build upon the dedicated work done by many of the pioneers in this field by bringing together the community of national security law teachers.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, 2 October 2010, at a conference facility in Washington, DC. The seminar will be held from 9:00am – 5:00pm and will feature various panel discussions and a luncheon speaker. We are also exploring the possibility of hosting a dinner for all participants on Friday evening, 1 October 2010, at the hotel we will be utilizing. Locations are still being explored with the goal of minimizing registration and lodging fees.

We welcome your participation in this event and ask that you save this date now. We also urge you to share this announcement with your friends and professional colleagues who might be interested in attending. If you are available, please respond to Holly McMahon at hmcmahon with your interest. We will be sending out formal registration materials in the near future.

Thank you for your consideration and we hope you will be able to join us.
