The primary text for the National Security Law course will be National Security Law (3rd ed.) by Dycus et al. The first part of the course, taught by Prof. Richard Rosen, will elaborate on the general principals of National Security Law by reviewing the framework of the separate branches of government that share national security responsibilities. Specific topics in the first half will include the roles and powers of the three branches of government and the domestic effect of international law. The second half of the course, taught by Dean Walter Huffman, will address more specific topics, including war, terrorism, the gathering of intelligence, and transborder issues related to the national security of the United States.
