Legal Reflections on the Past, Present, and Future of National Security
Thursday, May 23, 2013 05:30 PM to 07:00 PM Attend Event
Can drone strikes, both domestic and foreign, be legally justified? Will the war against al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations ever really be over?
As former general counsel of the Department of Defense under President Barack Obama and general counsel of the Department of the Air Force under President Bill Clinton, Jeh Johnson is uniquely equipped to give the legal perspective on all matters of national security. And with al-Qaeda still a threat and new military technology making headlines, reassessing the future direction of America's military policy is of utmost importance.
Johnson is currently a partner at Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP. He has also served as assistant United States attorney in the Southern District of New York and chairman of the New York City Bar's Judiciary Committee.
