LAW 371 - National Security Law.


This course will cover the United States national security legal framework and how that framework is manifested across fields of law. There have been important legal changes in the post-9/11 environment and those changes continue to evolve rapidly. From a foundational perspective, the course will examine the real or perceived prerogatives of the President and the distribution of power among the three branches. There will be a focus on the tension between national security and key civil liberties – such as the First and Fourth Amendments, Due Process, Privacy, the Writ of habeas corpus, and statutory protections. Topics covered will include intelligence gathering; terrorism; detention; the PATRIOT Act; espionage; role of the military; cybersecurity; telecommunications; and, legal processes. In addition, we will review topics that may have implications for attorneys practicing outside of the national security field, such as federal investigations; security clearances; immigration law; and criminal pitfalls.   Two hours.KeeferNot offered 2012-2013.
