Course Outline: This course is an introduction to national security law that will cover presidential and congressional national security powers under the Constitution as well as relevant statutes-such as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and the USA Patriot Act-regulations, and guidelines. Though the course is not limited to terrorism, terrorism-related issues-particularly post-9/11 counterterrorism policies-will feature heavily. Topics will include the use of military force; domestic and overseas intelligence collection; detention, interrogation, and prosecution (both civilian and military) as national security tools; and access to national security information. We will cover such themes as the allocation of power between Congress and the President on matters of foreign policy and war making, as well as the role of the judiciary in checking the political branches.
