Georgetown Law to Co-Sponsor Journal of National Security Law & Policy
April 30, 2012 —
Georgetown University Law Center is pleased to announce that it will co-sponsor the Journal of National Security Law & Policy with the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism at Syracuse University’s College of Law and Maxwell School of Citizenship & Public Affairs.
"We are delighted to co-sponsor the Journal of National Security Law & Policy," said Georgetown Law Dean William M. Treanor. "The Journal will anchor Georgetown’s position as the best law school for national security law and will create an exciting and important opportunity for Georgetown Law students who are passionate about the field."
Highly regarded for its scholarly contribution, policy analysis and recommendations, the Journal of National Security Law & Policy is the world’s only peer-reviewed journal devoted exclusively to national security law and policy. It was founded at the University of the Pacific McGeorge School of Law in 2003.
Journal membership will be open to J.D. and LL.M. Law Center students, who will work with the Journal’s board of editors to design a yearly symposium, contribute to peer-reviewed articles, publish their work and more.
"The Journal will allow our students to develop working relationships with distinguished national security law scholars and experts," said Georgetown Law Professor and editorial board member Laura Donohue. "The Journal is one of the most prominent publications in the field: it combines leading-edge scholarship with policy-relevant analysis."
Georgetown Law has one of the strongest national security law programs in the country. More than a dozen members of the full-time faculty, as well as over 60 adjuncts from the national security bar, the bench, and the NGO community, teach a broad range of courses in the field. Over the last ten years, more than 100 of these courses have been offered at the Law Center. Georgetown Law is also home to the Center on National Security and the Law, and it recently established one of the first LL.M. degree programs in national security law.
