Visiting Fellows

The National Security Institute at George Mason’s Antonin Scalia Law School is honored to announce our 2017 Visiting Fellows. These national security practitioners and industry leaders draw on diverse experiences from the intelligence community, government, private sector, and academia. Through policy papers, panel discussions, and other scholarship, our Visiting Fellows will contribute to a crucial discussion of the legal and practical challenges facing the U.S. intelligence, defense, law enforcement, homeland security, and cybersecurity communities. These experts and scholars will support NSI’s educational mission and will help ensure that NSI leads the debate on critical issues facing our nation in the upcoming year.
