The American Bar Association’s 12th Annual Homeland Security Law Institute (HSLI) will be held this year at George Washington University in Washington, D.C., on September 25-27, 2017. This three-day event is one of the largest gatherings of homeland security lawyers and policymakers in the United States. The Institute is an annual look at the state of security from cybersecurity to infrastructure, immigration to oversight and the roles of the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, the Military, the FBI, the legal profession and many more in keeping the country secure.
This year’s program will focus on cybersecurity and the global relationships necessary to facilitate security, privacy, and commerce around the world. We look forward to a robust dialogue among our key international partners regarding common core values and practices.
