Longtime members of this listserv know that I have long supported this wonderful annual event. It’s a unique opportunity to meet fantastic people that share your interest in national security law and to dive deep into a broad array of topics. My understanding is that there are a few spots left, but the deadline to apply runs out on April 18. More details from our friends at the Center for National Security Law at the University of Virginia:
22ND NATIONAL SECURITY LAW INSTITUTE APPLICATION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO APRIL 18
The Center for National Security Law has announced that the deadline for applying to attend the 22nd annual National Security Law Institute has been extended until April 18. The Institute will be held at the University of Virginia School of Law between June 1 and June 13, and will feature presentations by some of the leading authorities in the nation on various aspects of national security law. The Institute is open to professors of law and related disciplines and to government practitioners whose responsibilities include national security legal issues. Foreign scholars and government attorneys are eligible to apply, and over the decades participants from six continents have taken part in the program.
As the Institute Program reveals, in addition to presentations by Institute regulars like former Director of Central Intelligence R. James Woolsey, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces Chief Judge James A. "Jamie" Baker, and former FBI National Security Law Senior Counsel M.E. "Spike" Bowman, new presentations will be made by former Chief Judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review Morris S. Arnold and Deputy Under Secretary of Homeland Security Suzanne Spaulding. The directors of the UVA Center for National Security Law; Duke Law School Center on Law, Ethics, and National Security; and Georgetown Law Center Center for National Security and Law; will each make multiple presentations. The Legal Counsel to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the General Counsel for National Security in the Canadian Department of Defence, are also scheduled to address the Institute.
