The American Bar Association has partnered with Syracuse University and the Institute for National Security and Counterterrorism (INSCT) to host the Third Annual Seminar on Teaching Law and National Security. The conference will take place this Friday, September 14, 2012 from 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. time, and Saturday, September 15, 2012 from 8:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Eastern U.S. time.  According to INSCT Director William C. Banks, “The objective of the conference is to explore ways to enrich the education in our related but disparate disciplines by exposing one side and its methods and ways of approaching problems to the other.”

Panels will include, “Translating Legal Advise into Policy—How it Actually Happens,” “The Intersection of Legal Advice and Policy from the Service Branch Perspective,” and “Problem Solving in the Real World of National Security—Interdisciplinary Approaches and Lessons,” as well as keynote speeches by Harold Koh, Legal Adviser to the Department of State, and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs Dean James Steinberg.

The program’s website also lists the following as potential topics of discussion: inter-agency and whole of government approaches to problem solving, real world governance in national security, and translating theory into practice and advice into policy.

The event website includes links to seven documents for background reading.

Some space is still available for registrants. Syracuse University students interested in attending should contact INSCT Administrative Assistant, Marlene Diamond.
