Book Release: New Book Offers Compilation of Legal Policy, Practice Information Drawn From ABA Homeland Security Law Institute

CHICAGO, June 2, 2010 – The recent Times Square car bomb attempt brought the topic of homeland security to the front page of our newspapers and the forefront of our minds once again. As a legal discipline, the practice of homeland security law has gained traction with the _ Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice Section’s Annual Homeland Security Law Institute where private practitioners and public lawyers have benefited from the institute’s legal and policy panels, presentations and speakers on ways to prevent and respond to man-made and natural disasters.

Homeland Security: Legal and Policy Issues, a newly released book published by the ABA, has drawn on the institute’s invaluable content to create an important compilation of policy and practice-oriented information about homeland security law.

Tom Ridge, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security has said, “to be well-informed on Homeland Security law this book is a must read.”  Homeland Security: Legal and Policy Issues encourages a national dialogue on the legal and policy challenges related to homeland security, while the topics addressed reflect the uniqueness of those challenges.

The content is an invaluable resource for those seeking greater understanding of the dynamic threats to America, from both within and without its borders.  Expert authors have included easy references to additional authorities and information websites, making this publication an invaluable tool and lasting legal education sourcebook.
