Academic AnnouncementsThe Journal of National Security Law and Policy's latest issue is now available. Here's an excerpt of what it contains:
In the latest issue of the Journal of National Security & Counterterrorism, contributing authors address a spectrum of challenging and germane national and international security issues, including the legitimacy of arming Syrian rebels, reform of the Classified Information Procedures Act, the tension between US counterterrorism policy and legal frameworks used to justify it, and how military attorneys should frame discussions of cyber warfare techniques. Additionally, contributing to this journal's valuable dialog about teaching national security law, Col. Lisa L. Turner argues that the military should include the joint and perhaps inter-agency legal community in their legal education process.To read articles and subscribe to the print version, visit jnslp.com
