Homeland & National Security Law Review

Homeland & National Security Law Review

The Homeland & National Security Law Review (HNSLR) is the first legal periodical offered by an LL.M. Program at Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School. It is published annually in digital form and available on HeinOnline, Lexis Nexis and Westlaw. Our mission is to publish timely, practical, and innovative scholarly articles, notes, and comments in the field of homeland and national security law. We also welcome articles focused on veterans’ issues. We strive to foster an intellectual forum for academics and practitioners in the field of homeland and national security law so that others may continue to learn and share in this intriguing, dynamic area of the law.

The Homeland and National Security Law Review, in conjunction with The Homeland and National Security Law LL.M. program, will provide a means to encourage, foster, and disseminate the ever-evolving body of knowledge amassed by students, faculty, scholars, associated professionals, and staff in the emerging field of homeland and national security law. This law review will include, and encourages submission of, not just traditional law review articles, but also essays by subject matter experts. The HNSLR will also focus on the practical application of the law, whether by consideration of operational principles arising in its application or in consideration of the juxtaposition of the law and policy of homeland security.
