National Security Law can include topics such as bioterrorism, cyber law, civil liberties, intelligence law, maritime law, and foreign relations, among others. Many national security lawyers begin their careers in law firms, government, the military or Capitol Hill, and later develop an expertise in national security law issues. An alternate path is to work for a defense contractor or consulting firm. In the private sector, a national security lawyer might help clients navigate governmental restrictions regarding finance, trade and procurement. In the public sector national security and intelligence lawyers work within the federal government, the military and in non-profits, including research/think tanks.
