About NSG


The Yale Law National Security Group aims to foster a non-partisan community focused on national security and foreign policy within the law school. During the 2014-2015 year, the NSG hosted more than 20 events, including conversations with Ben Rhodes, Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communication, and Tom Donilon, former National Security Advisor.

Founded in 2013, the NSG is open to all members of the law school community. For more information, please contact the 2015-2016 co-presidents, hilary.ledwell(AT)yale(DOT)edu and david.manners-weber(AT)yale(DOT)edu.

You don’t have to be a lawyer, but you have to be an involved person. You have to care enough about things to do something about them. It doesn’t have to be politics. It can be your church, your school, your community center; however, you want to be involved. What you cannot do is ignore things.”
