Thomas Cooley to launch LL.M. in Homeland and National Security

Thomas M. Cooley Law School will begin offering an LL.M. in Homeland and National Security Law in September 2013. The degree will be offered on campus and online.

It is only the third graduate program in National Security, joining programs offered by George Washington University and Georgetown University, both in Washington, D.C.

Brigadier General Michael C.H. McDaniel, who currently teaches Constitutional Law as well as Homeland Security electives at Cooley, has developed the school’s Homeland and National Security curriculum. He previously served as U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary for Homeland Defense Strategy, Prevention and Mission Assurance. McDaniel also served as Michigan’s first Homeland Security Advisor and concurrently served as a Brigadier General in the Michigan National Guard.

“By offering a master of laws in Homeland Security, Cooley is providing future leaders with the legal knowledge and skills needed to succeed,” said Cooley President Don LeDuc. “Homeland Security Law is a growing field, and Cooley is uniquely qualified to be a leader in developing and offering this type of program.”

Students enrolled in the Homeland and National Security Law LL.M. program will also be able serve on Cooley’s latest publication, the Homeland and National Security Law Review. 
This Law Review will publish a selection of peer-reviewed, open-source, unclassified articles and will include an annual edition focused on veterans affairs.
