Now in our 20th year, the Annual Review Conference brings together attorneys and policy makers from government and the private sector to discuss and debate relevant issues of the day. Beginning with the popular Executive Branch Panel featuring general counsels from the national security community, conference participants will have the opportunity to attend over 12 hours of interactive CLE programming addressing prominent issues including governance of domestic intelligence, national security and environmental change, targeted killing and use of unmanned aerial systems, national security transformation and cybersecurity.

The program will also include a CLE ethics panel on ethics challenges for national security lawyers.
