This is a basic research guide to United States national security law.  It will reference statutes that directly (e.g., US PATRIOT ACT) or indirectly affect national security law (US Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1986).  Please Note:  this guide does not cover United States Military Law.

Library of Congress Call Numbers (used for locating books in the Law Library Stacks) usually start with "KF."  Occasionally you will see references to "SuDoc Number."  This refers to the US federal government's call numbers for official documents, the Superintendent of Documents ("SuDoc") Number.  If you have any questions about reading these call numbers, or if you have any questions, please see one of the Law Library reference librarians.
