National Security Law

Welcome to the National Security Law Guide!

Barry Bahler. DHS and TSA work with Amtrak and law enforcement partners to keep our nation’s passenger rail system safe every day. Operation RAILSAFE, which took place this week, provides enhanced, visible law enforcement and security presence at train stations and along trains on selected high volume travel days. September 4, 2015. Department of Homeland Security.

This guide provides an introduction to national security law, which covers military justice, homeland security, federal emergency and war powers, and more. 

If you are a law student interested in learning more about national security, we recommend contacting the law school's National Security Institute (NSI). The NSI is "a platform for research, teaching, scholarship, and policy development that incorporates a realistic assessment of the threats facing the United States and its allies as well as an appreciation of the legal and practical challenges facing U.S. intelligence, defense, law enforcement, homeland security, and cybersecurity communities."
