Events

Please join us on April 6th for an exciting symposium addressing issues raised by Professor Amanda Tyler’s new book, Habeas Corpus in Wartime: From the Tower of London to Guantanamo Bay (Oxford University Press). Habeas Corpus in Wartime tells the story of the writ of habeas corpus in wartime over the course of Anglo-American history, from its origins in English law to the special challenges presented by 21st Century warfare to our understanding of the habeas corpus privilege.

Our symposium on Habeas Corpus in Wartime will bring together some of the nation’s top jurists and legal scholars to debate timely issues raised by the book, including: the role of habeas corpus in our constitutional framework, the role of history in constitutional interpretation, and the separation of powers in wartime, among others.

The symposium will take place at Berkeley Law on April 6, 2018 at 9:00am. Please share widely, and direct any questions to Symposium Editor Daniel Contreras.
