Prescott Heighton

Prescott Heighton is a second-year law student and one of the Online Blog Editors for the NSLB. He is from Albany, New York and graduated from both the University at Albany, SUNY with a concentration in European History. Prescott was a Surface Warfare Officer in the Navy for six years which included one year of writing/reviewing policy for the Navy’s Fleet Antiterrorism Force Protection Office at the Pentagon and studied at the Marine Corps University’s Expeditionary Warfare School in Quantico, VA for nine months learning expeditionary/joint warfare planning. He is currently externing at the Office of General Counsel for the Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration. Prescott joined the Brief because, after law school, he plans on obtaining a job in the federal government working on national security law and policy. As such, he felt that being an integral part of the Brief would not only provide him with relevant knowledge of current national security law topics but also would provide him with valuable writing experience and the opportunity to be published in the field. It is one of his goals to see the Brief become a journal and to help build it into a functional network of national security law practitioners and similarly interested law students.
