Lawfare is pleased to announce the publication of a new -- and timely -- paper in the Lawfare Research Paper Series: An Essay on Domestic Surveillance, by Philip B. Heymann, law professor at Harvard Law School and former Deputy Attorney General in the first Clinton Administration. (The paper can be found under the Special Features/Research Papers tab at the top of the Lawfare main page, where it is listed on the index of Lawfare Research Papers.
Lawfare Research Paper Series
The Research Paper Series is Lawfare’s attempt to save national security legal scholarship from the soul-crushing void of law reviews. Only the very rarest law review articles have any kind of policy relevance or value to people who actually make hard national security choices--and conversely, what policy-relevant scholarship does get published in law reviews rarely gets anywhere near its potential policy audiences. The Research Paper Series aims to change this by publishing scholarship that that Lawfare believes is actually useful and important to policymakers and national security practitioners.
