Assignment

I will do a brief summary of suing the government at the beginning of class. We are then going to read and discuss Chapter 43: RESTRAINING UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURES OF NATIONAL SECURITY INFORMATION. With Bolton in the news, it will be timely and will make you the best-informed person in the room on the actual law.

Guide – Chapter 43

This is a rich chapter with a lot of law. Read it carefully and think about the 1st Amendment versus the right to protect classified information. Also think about how this would apply to Bolton.
