This Colloquium, offered credit/fail for one credit, will be built around a series of guest presentations by leading current and former government officials and others centrally involved in issues of national security law and policy. There will be four five to seven speakers in total for the semester. Each speaker will deliver a public presentation to participants in the Colloquium and other interested members of the Law School and University community. Each presentation will include a question and answer session. Some speakers may also meet in a smaller informal session with the participants in the Colloquium. Participants in the Colloquium will attend each of the presentations (and any scheduled informal sessions), and will write short (2-3 page) reaction papers for each of the presentations.
Admission to the Colloquium is by Professor Morrison's permission only. Students wishing to participate should email a resume, transcript, and (optional) brief statement explaining their interest in the Colloquium to Professor Morrison at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15, 2010.
