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. In the past, NSG hosted events such as 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. 

This place has always been imbued with a restless spirit, the assumption that being the finest law school in the world is never enough, and a deep belief that you, our students, can do anything.”
