Law and National Security: Legitimacy, Security, and ‘Tom Clancy Stuff’ podcast

Doyle Hodges, Bobby Chesney, Laurie Blank Oct 23, 2019

In this episode of Horns of a Dilemma, TNSR‘s executive editor, Doyle Hodges, sits down with Laurie Blank, clinical professor of law and director of the International Law Clinic at Emory University, and Bobby Chesney, Clements Center faculty fellow and Strauss Center director. They discuss the field of national security law broadly, including why Americans have turned increasingly to law to address questions related to national security, even as public confidence in institutions associated with law has declined. They also dive into how law confers legitimacy on the process of national security decision-making and what the limitations of law are in addressing national security questions. Join us for a fascinating discussion on law, security, technology, and society.
