The Georgetown Center on National Security and the Law combines innovative scholarly theory with practical research, teaching and training, policy analysis and development, outreach and engagement, impact litigation, and discussion and debate.
The Center aims to bridge the academic and policy communities; bring together people from relevant disciplines who study national security law and related issues; produce new generations of scholars and legal practitioners who understand the complexities of national security law.
Our goal is intensely practical — to change the dialogue from the current sloganeering debate into a mature conversation that can build long-term solutions to the problems posed by asymmetric warfare, rapid technological and transportation changes, and religious extremism.
At Georgetown Law, national security law comes alive in the classroom. See what it's like to be be a government official amid a national security emergency in the National Security Crisis Law simulation.
