Founded in April 2009, the American University American University National Security Law Brief (Brief) is the nation’s first student-run law school publication to focus on the ever-growing field of national security law. The Brief is a biannual print publication featuring journal-length, academic legal articles analyzing all aspects of United States national security law, from traditional security issues such as counterterrorism, intelligence collection, and nuclear proliferation, to cutting-edge developments related to soft power and cybersecurity. The Brief also has an extensive online component, featuring student-written pieces on current topics as well as focus pieces from noted national security law practitioners and academics. Given its location in Washington, DC and its growing relationship with the legal community, the Brief serves as an ideal platform for innovative ideas in national security law.
