The Strauss Center engages in a number of activities related to its national security law program.
The National Security Law Workshop entered its 8th year in 2015. This acclaimed event takes place each May, now under the joint sponsorship of the Strauss Center, the International Committee of the Red Cross, the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School, and the South Texas College of Law. Pioneered by Professors Bobby Chesney of UT and Geoff Corn of South Texas, the event annually assembles a collection of several dozen civilian and military lawyers in a blended-format workshop including paper presentations and roundtable discussions on hot topics. Participation is determined by a combination of a call-for-papers and through competitive application for spots as discussants and general participants.
THE NATIONAL SECURITY LAW PODCAST
Launched in the spring of 2017, the NSL Podcast is a weekly review of the latest legal controversies associated with the U.S. government’s national security activities and institutions, featuring Professors Bobby Chesney and Steve Vladeck of the University of Texas at Austin. They bring different perspectives to these issues, but always in a friendly spirit. The program is fast-paced but detail-rich, and is meant for lawyers and non-lawyers alike. If you’ve been looking for a thoughtful yet enjoyable way to keep up with and better understand these issues, this is the show for you.
