MINSLA’s aim is to bring together Scalia Law students who are interested in learning more about the practice of national security law. With the support of the National Security Institute and the National Security Law Journal, MINSLA’s purpose is to bridge the gap between these students and working professionals. To that end, we set out to: identify trends and current events in the national security world; educate and prepare students to enter the industry; coordinate networking, informational, and social events with practitioners; and engage with professional and other educational organizations.
