On February 12, NYU School of Law’s Center on Law and Security announced that Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Barton Gellman will join the center as a senior research fellow. Starting in the fall of 2010, Gellman, as head of a team of visiting fellows, will develop a new program on national security and investigative strategies for journalists and researchers studying defense, intelligence, and foreign policy. Gellman will also join Time, where he will write cover stories and serve as a contributing editor. Gellman previously was legal affairs reporter, military correspondent, Jerusalem bureau chief, diplomatic correspondent, and special projects reporter during 21 years at the Washington Post. He twice shared the Pulitzer Prize for national reporting and he is the author of Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency.

"Bart Gellman is one of a handful of investigative journalists who has accurately shaped the defining moments of our time," says Karen Greenberg, executive director of the Center on Law and Security. “…At the Center, he will be indispensable in creating a new generation of journalists and researchers who share his gifts and values. We welcome him and are deeply honored by his presence."
