Pro-Seminar in National Security Law
LL.M Seminar 2006 | 3 credit hours
The Proseminar in National Security Law serves as the gateway course for National Security Law LL.M. students, and it is one of the distinguishing features of the program. The three credit Proseminar is taught by a full time faculty member and is composed solely of the National Security Law LL.M. students. Taught in the autumn, the course provides students with a basic foundation in national security law and an opportunity to think more broadly about the field. The course also serves to bring students together to build cohesion among the class. In addition, the Proseminar helps ensure that students who leave Georgetown Law to join different parts of the national security dialogue—e.g., civilian and military government agencies, human rights organizations, boutique law firms, in-house at high technology companies, contractors, civil liberties organizations, academic institutions, and the like—have an opportunity to be in direct dialogue with each other. The Proseminar has the further advantage of creating social and professional camaraderie amongst the program participants, which is useful to students beyond their time at Georgetown Law.
Students may not receive credit for this seminar and Issues in Disarmament: Proliferation and Terrorism Seminar.
This course is only open to LL.M students who are admitted into the LL.M in National Security Law Program.
