On February 14, the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University announced the creation of a National Security Institute (NSI) to bring national security experts together with policymakers to find practical answers to hard national security law and policy questions.

“The new National Security Institute will strive to provide much needed balance to the public discourse on the most difficult national security challenges facing the United States and its allies,” said Scalia Law Dean Henry N. Butler. “Drawing on our location next door to the Nation’s capital, NSI will bring together a set of top-notch faculty members and experts with decades of combined experience tackling national security challenges in all three branches of the U.S. government, in order to educate students and help shape the policy debate on these critically important issues.”

NSI will serve as a platform for research, teaching, scholarship, and policy development that incorporates a realistic assessment of the threats facing the United States and its allies, as well as an appreciation of the legal and practical challenges facing U.S. intelligence, defense, law enforcement, homeland security, and cybersecurity communities.
