The National Security Law Brief at American University Washington College of Law is seeking articles with a nexus between law, policy, and a pressing national security issue. Articles will ideally analyze an interesting, cutting-edge legal question and include recommendations, policy solutions, or a call to action. Articles should break down challenging issues into digestible analyses that are accessible to the common reader.
We accept articles covering the broadest range of national security topics including traditional national security, as well as topics in foreign technology investment, industrial security, homeland security, cybersecurity and data security, bio security, corruption, supply chains, food and other vital goods supply, critical infrastructure, emergency management, space law and other emerging fields. This is not an exhaustive list. If your article explains how your issue impacts national security, our editors will consider it for publication.
We ask that submissions include a brief bullet-pointed summary addressing your primary issue, main points, and conclusion.
