A critical mission of the U.S. national security apparatus is to investigate and prosecute individuals and entities, whether foreign or domestic, that are suspected of endangering the homeland by virtue of their acts or omissions. In matters resulting in criminal prosecution, the judiciary, in turn, must balance the national security interests advanced by the government with the due process rights of defendants. The challenges faced by practitioners in this environment are unique and formidable, and protecting their clients’ interests requires the successful navigation of laws and classification issues that often complicate a robust defense.

To kick off the American Bar Association’s Standing Committee on Law & National Security’s 24th Annual Review, join us on November 5, 2014, at 6:00 pm at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, LLP (700 Sixth Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001) as a distinguished federal judge, prominent defense counsel, and a senior CIA attorney address the myriad challenges presented by government enforcement actions in the national security domain.
