Teaching assistant opportunity for Zachary Goldman and Lisa Monaco’s Fall 2017 class.  The class is scheduled for Tuesdays from 4-6 p.m. The TA would need to work 5-8 hours per week.  Please see class description below:


This seminar will focus on the formation of national security law and national security policy, and the dynamic interactions between between those two areas.  We will analyze the relationships among the three branches, the different institutional actors within the executive branch, and the interaction between U.S. national security agencies and their counterparts abroad.  Specific topics will include intelligence, counterterrorism, the role of the courts in national security, and cybersecurity, among others.  In an era in which the United States seems to be asking fundamental questions about its role in the world we will surface and examine some of the core assumptions animating U.S. national security law and policy in the post-World War II era.


Duties include: Monitoring attendance; facilitating small group discussions; grading; holding office hours; preparing group discussion topics and approaches.


Interested candidates should email CLS@mercury.law.nyu.edu by COB Tuesday, May 30th.
