National Security Law Association (NSLA)

President: Hayley Hoffman [email]

In the post-September 11 world, national security issues affect nearly every area of law. The National Security Law Association (NSLA) was created to help educate GW Law’s future lawyers about these issues and to provide a forum for discussion of such issues among students, practitioners, and faculty. NSLA sponsors panel discussions, keynote speakers, and career networking events. In addition, NSLA provides members with the opportunity each semester to attend a dinner with a practitioner of national security law. In the past year, NSLA has held panels on the International Criminal Court, the legal ramifications of the U.S. government employing private security contractors, and intelligence surveillance.
