Today, a new national security legal blog is launching: Just Security. Here’s bidding it the warmest of welcomes.
Just Security describes itself as “an online forum for the rigorous analysis of law, rights, and U.S. national security policy.” It is an ambitious project centered at NYU Law School and headed by NYU law professor Ryan Goodman and Lawfare‘s own Steve Vladeck. While lots of other sites write about the issues we cover sometimes, Just Security is the first other web site devoted exclusively to national security law and legal policy and manned by a significant team of prominent academic and practitioner voices.
Just Security‘s masthead includes, in addition to Steve and Ryan: Philip Alston, David Cole, Jen Daskal, Mary DeRosa, Daphne Eviatar, Shaheed Fatima, Jennifer Granick, Jameel Jaffer, Derek Jinks, Sarah Knuckey, Harold Hongju Koh, Marty Lederman, David Luban, Fionnuala Ní Aoláin, Julian Sanchez, Meg Satterthwaite, Steve Schulhofer, Hina Shamsi, Beth Van Schaack, Jeremy Waldron, and Andy Wright.
Goodman and Vladeck joined me for an extended conversation about Just Security, what they aim to do with it, and how it will differ from Lawfare.
