Work On! National security law

(Work On! is an occasional item about workshops, roundtables, and other fora for scholarship-presentation-without-publication) A host of scholarly subjects now fall within "the national security law umbrella" -- jus ad bellum and jus in bello, of course, but also intersections between international humanitarian law and international human rights law, interactions among national, regional, and international legal regimes, overlaps among powers of various governmental branches, and, even more broadly, the degree to which individual human security aids or undermines collective national security. Scholars working in these areas (particularly though not exclusively "junior" scholars) are invited to take part in a National Security Law Works-in-Progress Workshop on May 23, 2008, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Cosponsors include Wake Forest University School of Law, national security law centers at Duke University and the University of Virginia, the Judge Advocate General's Legal Center and School, and the Journal of National Security Law & Policy.
Papers, or at the very least, abstracts, should be submitted by the April 4 deadline to our colleague Bobby Chesney at robert.chesney@wfu.edu. They'll then be reviewed by officers of the National Security Law Section of the Association of American Law Schools.
Details here on the call for works-in-progress and the workshop, which is open to presenters and nonpresenters alike.
