This course will examine domestic and international law in relation to U.S. intelligence and national security objectives in the context of the post-9/11 period. It will survey domestic counter-terrorism law, immigration law, and international humanitarian law (the law of armed conflict). Special emphasis will be placed on the relationship between international and domestic laws, and the balance between national security and civil liberties. Upon completion of this course, students will be able to evaluate the United States legal response to terrorism in the post-9/11 period, discuss the relationship between international law and U.S. national security laws, and critically assess the legal status of the War on Terror. This class includes an optional trip to the National Constitution Center in Center City, Philadelphia.
