  • Description

    This casebook provides a comprehensive examination and analysis of the inherent tension between the Constitution and select national security policies, and explores the multiple dimensions of that conflict. Specifically, the Second Edition comprehensively explores the constitutional foundation for the development of national security policy and the exercise of a wide array of national security powers. Each chapter focuses on critically important precedents, offering targeted questions following each case to assist students in identifying key concepts to draw from the primary sources. Offering students a comprehensive yet focused treatment of key national security law concepts, National Security Law and the Constitution is well suited for a course that is as much an advanced “as applied” constitutional law course as it is a national security law or international relations course.

    Jeffrey Kahn joined the SMU Law faculty in Fall 2006, where he is now University Distinguished Professor of Law. He teaches and writes on American constitutional law, Russian law, human rights, and counterterrorism. In 2007-2008, he received the Maguire Teaching Fellow Award from the Cary M.

In 2011, the year he was tenured and promoted to associate professor, he received the Law School’s Excellence in Teaching Award. In 2020, he was named Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor by the University and a Storey Research Fellowship by the Law School.

    Professor Kahn has been a Fulbright Research Scholar at the Faculty of Law of the University of Oslo, the O’Brien Research Fellow in Residence at McGill University Faculty of Law, and a Visiting Professor of Law at Washington & Lee School of Law.

    His latest research on U.S. legal topics focuses on the right to travel and national security law. His most recent book, Mrs. Shipley's Ghost: The Right to Travel and Terrorist Watchlists (University of Michigan Press, 2013), critically examines the U.S. Government’s No Fly List. Among other publications, his articles have appeared in the UCLA Law Review, Michigan Law Review, Virginia Journal of International Law, and the William & Mary Bill of Rights Journal and the peer-reviewed European Journal of International Law, Review of Central and East European Law, and the Journal of National Security Law and Policy.

    Professor Kahn’s work on Russian law has been noted by name by the editors of the New York Times and published in various law reviews as well as the peer-reviewed journals Post-Soviet Affairs and Review of Central and East European Law. His latest research has focused primarily on the influence in Russia of the European Convention on Human Rights. In 2011, Russian President Dmitrii Medvedev's Human Rights Council asked him─the one American among six other experts from Russia, one from Germany, and one from the Netherlands─to write an expert report on the second conviction of Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev.

    He is a graduate of Yale College, Oxford University (where he won the Hodgson Martin Prize for Best Dissertation for his doctoral work on Russian federalism), and the University of Michigan Law School. After law school, he was a law clerk to the Honorable Thomas P. Griesa of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. He served as a trial attorney in the Civil Division, United States Department of Justice from October 2003 until April 2006.
