After 10 years, how successful has the U.S. War on Terror been, and what should be our next step? Experts from the military, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, and academia will discuss the War on Terror launched by the U.S. in response to the 9/11 attacks. They will examine what the U.S. has done to try to prevent future terrorist attacks, the effectiveness of those methods, and alternatives for the future. With direct and consulting experience in the war on terror, panelists will speak from first-hand experience about the challenges, successes and future plans to protect U.S. citizens and their country from attack.

Additional Information
At one-hour CLE activities, Ohio Supreme Court regulations require attorneys to be present for the entire hour to obtain credit. Therefore, registration for one-hour lectures will close at the time the event is scheduled to start. Everyone is welcome to attend the lecture, but we cannot submit CLE credit for late arrivals.

At events longer than one hour, we will submit credit based on an attorney’s arrival time and duration of attendance, but no less than the minimum of one full hour of attendance.

We encourage attendees to arrive at registration 20 minutes prior to the start of a lecture to sign in, obtain materials, and be seated.


There is no law school parking, however, public parking, for a fee, is available in the Cleveland Botanical Garden parking underground garage. Also, meter parking might be available.

Recording in any form is prohibited.
