Next month the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice will be hosting its annual Homeland Security Law Institute, one of the Section’s three major annual conferences. It has been a premier program every year, and promises to be this year as well. So definitely don’t miss it if you’re in DC in late August. Here are the details:
11th ANNUAL HOMELAND SECURITY LAW INSTITUTE
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
AUGUST 24 – 25, 2016
From the terrorist attack on America in September 2001 to Katrina’s ravaging of New Orleans to the most recent acts of domestic terrorism in San Bernardino, Orlando and Dallas, there is one common denominator – homeland security – and the myriad of legal and policy issues that both the private and corporate lawyer must understand in representing their clients effectively in these and other situations. There is a place for lawyers who want to know more about the legal and policy issues associated with homeland security – that is the American Bar Association’s Homeland Security Law Institute.
Over a two day period, lawyers who practice in some or even all of the disciplines available on the program will be presented with the latest legal tools to give them a professional advantage. The agenda is geared to give the practitioner first hand access to the legal leadership of the Department of Homeland Security in a range of areas including cybersecurity, immigration enforcement, emergency response, supply chain, customs enforcement, privacy laws and U.S. oversight of foreign acquisition of critical American infrastructure. This year Homeland Security’s Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas will deliver the Keynote address.
