U.S. v. Hamdan: Military Commissions Sixty-Six Years after Quirin
Sponsor
Institute for Global Security Law and Policy
NOV 19, 2008
4:45 PM - 5:45 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom (A59)

In his talk, Lieutenant Commander Mizer will look at questions of criminal procedure and the protections due to criminal defendants within the current system of Military Commissions, but also in criminal trials generally. He will focus on comparisons between the trial in Quirin and Mr. Hamdan's trial and argue that military commissions still do not afford defendants basic due process. Lt. Comm. Mizer will discuss the problem of balancing security and constitutional liberty in the global war on terrorism.
