Who We Are

In its first decade, the Center established Georgetown Law as the place to study national security law. Anchored by the strongest and most diverse national security faculty in the country, the Center is at the forefront of the national security conversation. The Center publishes the only peer reviewed national security law journal; supports one of the few national security J.D./LL.M. programs; has an unparalleled student body in terms of diversity and experience in national security and an engaged and well-positioned alumni community; and is at the leading edge of experiential and practical learning for students pursuing a career in national security.

In its second decade, the Center is primed for growth and is expanding its work as a think/ do tank, connecting research to real world problems. Building on our Washington D.C. advantage, we aim to become the preeminent place for ethical national security innovation and problem solving in a rapidly-changing and interconnected world. Government entities – historically, the central actors on national security – are not generally well suited for innovation. Georgetown is.
