nationalsecuritylaw upcoming event: “After Afghanistan: Where to from Here?” Duke Law

This event is always worth attending. The documents are attached; here is the invitation from Charlie Dunlap:


I am writing to personally invite you to attend the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security conference here at Duke Law School on Friday, 13 April and Saturday, 14 April. Attendance is free, but you must register to attend.

This year’s theme is After Afghanistan: Where To From Here? The conference will be examining the state and future of national security law-related issues in the era beyond active battlefields, including dealing with persisting threats of technology-empowered terrorists and with rising peer-competitors.

To do this, we have assembled a prestigious group of scholars, policymakers and commentators who will take an interdisciplinary approach to all these issues from both a legal and a policy perspective. For example, our luncheon and dinner speakers this year are General Michael Hayden (USAF, Ret.), former director of the CIA; Mr. Will Gunn, General Counsel, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Dr. Mac Owens, Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval War College.

We will be addressing developments and trends in homegrown terrorism, international coalition operations, international human rights, judicial deference in national security cases, and the international law of armed conflict. On the latter panel, VADM James Houck, the Judge Advocate General of the Navy , will be a speaker. The full conference agenda is found here and is also attached as a .pdf file.

As I say, the conference is free, but you must register to attend. We have, incidentally, applied for 10 hours of North Carolina CLE credit, including one hour of ethics.

To register, fill out the registration form found julian. Or you can download it and drop it in the mail to LENS, Duke University School of Law, Box 90358, Durham NC 27708-0358. Additional information about the conference is found here.

You will see on the registration form that you do have to pay for meals. The dinner (General Hayden will speak) will take place at the Washington Duke Inn which is really a spectacular location.

Hope to see you at the conference – seating is limited so please register early!!!!! Thanks, Charlie Dunlap
