We received word from our friend Peter Marguilies of a call for papers that is likely of interest to some Just Security readers, particularly those in legal academy.  Here are the details:

The NSA and AALS January 2015: Call for Papers 

The American Association of Law Schools (AALS) Section on National Security invites abstracts for the selection of two panelists for its 2015 Annual Meeting program, “The National Security Agency and the Rule of Law.”  The topic is timely, including changes in Fourth Amendment doctrine, statutory frameworks, and presidential guidance.  Abstracts that explore the balance between liberty and security in a shifting threat landscape are welcome.  The Journal of National Security Law and Policy will publish the two papers chosen by the Section’s Program Committee (and may publish other papers designated by the Committee); the two authors will present their papers as part of the Section Program in Washington, D.C. on January 2-5, 2015.  This invitation is open to all full-time faculty members at AALS member schools.  Abstracts, which should be no more than 1,000 words in length, should be submitted by August 15, 2014 to section chair Peter Margulies of Roger Williams University School of Law, pmargulies@rwu.edu.
