The 2016 Randolph W. Thrower Symposium
Redefined National Security Threats: Tensions and Legal Implications
Thursday, Feb. 11
Emory University School of Law

Keynote, Professor Harold Hongju Koh
The Symposium will explore the tensions, complementarities, and resulting legal implications in three rapidly changing and developing areas of national security: cyber security; new technologies, including domestic drones; and effect of transnational tensions on domestic security, immigration laws, and cross-border security.
Recent developments in the national security law arena demonstrate a strong need for organized and thoughtful discussions on threats and corresponding responses in these areas--both at local, federal and international levels and across the public-private divide. We hope that diverse opinions and approaches to assessing these issues will create an opportunity for stimulating dialogue on the future of national security law.
