In case what is missing from your life is a series of video lectures breaking down national security law topics, we are here to help!

During our summers under COVID lockdown, we finally had time—and extra reason—to act on a project we've talked about for years: developing and recording together a set of U.S. national security law video lectures. These videos are intended for use by students, teachers, practitioners, journalists, or anyone who just wants to know about this stuff.

We've created a website (NSLLectures.com) to host them, and they're also all available on Lawfare's resource page for teachers and students. The first set of 10 includes an introductory lecture about the field as a whole, and then an initial set of nine other lectures covering topics including war powers, intelligence, surveillance, and cybersecurity. Our plan is to continue adding to this set with lectures on additional topics in the future. Comments/feedback are most welcome!
