Do you believe in strengthening the next generation of national and international security law experts?

Do you want to ensure that law students and active duty military stay up-to-date on national and international issues that affect our country? 

Do you think ethics is important in the discussion of national security issues like drones, use of force, civil-military relations, cybersecurity and more?

Give to make our future leaders the best they can be! 

When you choose to contribute directly to the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security, you are choosing to impact the lives of future national security leaders – in law, in non-profits, in government and in the military. 

You will help connect them with real-world exposure to speakers on the front-line in national security law, and exposes them to extra knowledge, ethics and information they need to best lead our country in the future. 

Your donation to the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security helps to:

  • Send law students to attend the ABA National Security Conference in DC

And, your contribution helps both active duty military and law students by enabling them to:

  • Attend at no-cost the February conference put on by the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security
  • Attend the conference dinner and hear and interact with a prominent speaker in national security at a much-reduced cost

Plus, your contribution helps support:

  • Travel costs of speakers addressing the LENS conference allowing the event to bring in top-quality speakers
  • Other national security forums and speakers presented by LENS.
  • Discussions, mentorships and information-sharing
