About NSLS

The National Security and Law Society (NSLS) strives to create an effective, non-partisan forum for informed discourse on U.S. national security policy and foreign affairs. Our tri-fold mission is (a) to foster interest in, and understanding of, the legal aspects and ramifications of national security by sponsoring speakers and programs concerning the many issues covered by this umbrella; (b) to aid members in their pursuits of careers in these fields; and (c) to contribute to the development of national security law.

If you are captivated by intelligence activities, counter-terrorism, classified information, electronic intercepts, or related issues, then this is the group for you. For further information, email nsls@wcl.american.edu.
