Description:
Introduction to Department of Defense Security Clearance Cases (Tuesday, February 26) 
 
Credit: 3.0 Credit Hours

Description: This interactive course provides valuable information on the procedural framework and substantive rules governing the established administrative personnel security due process provided by the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals. Those who attend will learn about the new national security Adjudicative Guidelines issued by the Director of National Intelligence which became effective in 2017. Our faculty will also address the effect of Executive Order 13764, that modernizes and strengthens how the Federal Government performs and safeguards background investigations for its employees and contractors. He also will also discuss the Federal Circuit decision in Wonders v. Department of the Army (September 2016) and its effect on transparency in administrative due process, as well as the latest DoD administrative security clearance case decisions decided during this past year. Using interactive polling software, our faculty will walk you through simulations in which you must use your knowledge of the rules, procedures, and the case decisions discussed during the class to decide how the cases should turn out. This class is strongly recommended for practitioners who represent or anticipate representing military personnel, civilian employees of the U.S. Department of Defense, or officers and employees of defense contractors (or the contractors for thirty other Federal departments and agencies) who face a decision to deny or revoke their access to classified information.

Faculty: Peregrine Russell-Hunter, Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals, U.S. Department of Defense

Description:
Taught by experienced practi¬tioners, this course provides basic back-ground and training on security clearance cases and how to contest security clearance denials and revocations throughout the feder¬al system, including representation of both employees and contractors. Discussions will primarily revolve around handling adminis¬trative hearings before the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals and written submis¬sions and personal appearances before the intelligence, military, and law enforcement communities. However, litigation strategies also will be discussed. In addition, faculty will review past case decisions and potential ave-nues for exceptions. This class benefits anyone who represents clients with security clearance problems, or who holds a security clearance and wants to understand the issues better. It will be of special interest to those who have attended the CLE Program’s past offering, Introduction to Department of Defense Security Clearance Cases.
