The AALS Section on National Security Law has issued a call for papers in connection with its panel presentation at the January 2008 AALS annual meeting in New York, on the general theme of the military's domestic role. One can, of course, fit quite a range of issues under that general heading (emergency response, surveillance, homeland defense, civ-mil relations, and so on).
The details are posted here. Note that the purpose of the call is to fill the final spot on the panel, with the paper itself then slated for publication in the Journal of National Security Law & Policy (subject to editorial approval of the final product should the winning submission consist only of an abstract-and-outline). Also note that the submission deadline is August 15.
If you are at all interested, please do send us your proposal. Participation in a panel at AALS can be a terrific way to get to know other folks in this field, and the same is true for publication in the JNSL&P.
