Law and National Security at the DOJ:
A Conversation with John Demers and Lisa Monaco
November 13, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm
When the National Security Division (NSD) at the US Department of Justice was established in 2006, its primary mission was combatting terrorism. Today, the division’s work is varied, with a significant focus on combatting national security-related economic espionage and cybercrime. At this Forum, Assistant Attorney General for National Security John Demers joined Reiss Center Distinguished Senior Fellow Lisa Monaco in a wide-ranging conversation on the practice of national security law at the Department of Justice today. They discussed a range of key issues and challenges, from Chinese economic and political espionage to Russian influence campaigns to the current state of international and domestic terrorism. This event was co-hosted by the Reiss Center on Law and Security.
