National Security Law

Especially since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the nation’s attention has been drawn repeatedly to how the U.S. government conducts and regulates national security, at home and abroad. Harvard Law offers students opportunities to learn from renowned experts, including former national security officials, about the law governing the often-controversial means by which the U.S. government protects the American public from external threats.
