EMININT 2006 - Agenda

As the originating chapter of the National Security and Law Society, an international, non-partisan law student organization, the WCL Chapter of NSLS hosted EMININT 2005 last March, a stunning success that brought together nearly 100 professionals and numerous students for eight different panels, including a Keynote Banquet with former Virginia Governor James Gilmore. Complete with round-the-clock C-SPAN coverage, EMININT 2005 constituted an unprecedented accomplishment, bringing together experts in intelligence, foreign policy, and law to within reach of graduate and law students thirsty for information.

EMININT 2006 will consist of speakers who represent the pinnacles of their respective fields, coming from six countries and across the United States, including academic experts, senior U.S. government policymakers, and international legal authorities and media experts. These men and women have written books, made and interpreted laws and regulations, and reported on the ever-changing realities that encompass the field of National Security. There is something for everyone in this symposium, and few attendees will fail to take something away from it.
