The Federalist Society’s International & National Security Law Practice Group cordially invites you to a Symposium on

The NSA, Security, Privacy, and Intelligence

In the 12 years since 9/11, as the national security threat matrix has become increasingly complex, technological advances have expanded intelligence gathering capabilities significantly. Recently, public concern about government monitoring of individuals has come to the forefront of the discussion. To address the intersection of security, privacy, and intelligence, the President has proposed several reforms, and is studying others in consultation with Congress. This Symposium will analyze and offer observations on those proposals.

Please put the date on your calendar and plan to attend.
