The Center on Law, Ethics and National Security at Duke Law School will hold its annual conference on Friday, April 13th and Saturday, April 14th. The Center's executive director, Air Force Maj. General Charles Dunlap, writes:

This year’s theme is After Afghanistan: Where To From Here? The conference will examine the state and future of national security law-related issues in the era beyond active battlefields, including dealing with persisting threats of technology-empowered terrorists and with rising peer-competitors.  To do this, we have assembled a prestigious group of scholars, policymakers and commentators who will take an interdisciplinary approach to all these issues from both a legal and a policy perspective.  For example, our luncheon and dinner speakers this year are General Michael Hayden (USAF, Ret.), former director of the CIA; Mr. Will Gunn, General Counsel, Department of Veterans Affairs, and Dr. Mac Owens, Professor of National Security Affairs at the Naval War College.  Attendance is free, but all attendees must register.  The registration form is found here and more information can be found here.
