LAW - 635B National Security Law: Surveillance and Secrecy


(2 hrs.)

The role of lawyers in national security has never been more important, nor more challenging. As intelligence organizations develop measures to protect the nation’s security from ever-changing threats, they run the risk of undermining the nation’s core values. This course examines the complex legal framework that governs how the U.S. government conducts surveillance and protects secrecy, and explores the tensions that arise from the corresponding need to protect privacy and ensure accountability.
