Washington, D.C.

Tom Crocker spoke on the panel "Homeland Security 101" during this first-ever conference hosted by the American Bar Association (ABA).  Homeland security impacts virtually every aspect of legal practice.  Whether federal regulations that help keep America's ports secure or measures intended to protect the sensitivity of critical infrastructure information, homeland security cuts across the legal landscape.  As such, the Department of Homeland Security is largely responsible for promulgating homeland security regulations.  Tom's panel explored some of the Department's key legal authorities and regulations and addressed related themes including procurement, international trade and presidential policy directives.  The panel discussed the following topics.

  • How Did We Get Here? - A Very Brief History of Homeland Security and DHS
  • Homeland Security Presidential Directives - The Role of Presidential Policy
  • Homeland Security, Trade and Investment
  • Procurement - Procurement Considerations and Challenges at DHS
  • Regulation - Regulatory Development, Implementation and Enforcement at DHS
