Duke Law students storm DC for the ABA’s 32nd annual national security law conference!
The Center on Law, Ethics and National Security (LENS) is again hosting a group of Duke Law students at the American Bar Association’s 32nd Annual Review of the Field of National Security Law Conference in Washington, DC. In a future post, you’ll hear more about that event that begins today.
To kick off the learning experience, the 10 students got to visit in a small group setting with some Duke alumni and other practitioners who are working in national security law in the military, law firms, the judiciary, government, and academia.
Table discussions over dinner at the historic Army and Navy Club Wednesday night allowed students to connect, ask questions and to hear advice and stories from those who are working in the field.
We also briefly visited the Club’s special library and saw artifacts such as a refectory table used as a barricade in 1898 by Spanish troops being attacked by insurrectionists. Its plugged bullet holes give nod to lasting impacts of conflicts.
Stay tuned for more about the conference!
