Justice & The War On Terror (Cle Seminar)

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

How should we respond when there is a conflict between protecting our security and promoting civil rights? Using case law, the Constitution, legislation and proclamations, legal theory, Jewish law, and case studies, this seminar will discuss different approaches and systems about how to handle this vexing dilemma. ::Part One:: Torture and the Ticking Time Bomb Dilemma The recent "Torture Report" alleges that the brutal interrogation techniques used by the CIA in the aftermath of 9/11 were ineffective. But what if they did yield valuable information -- would they have been justified? While the evils of terror must be combated, human rights must also be protected. How are we to balance these competing values? ::Part Two:: The Hostage Dilemma In 2011, Israel set 1,027 prisoners free in exchange for the release of Gilad Shalit. More recently, the rise of ISIS and the murders of James Foley and Steven Sutloff and others have forced us to revisit this heart wrenching debate: Should we pay hefty ransoms or release dangerous criminals in exchange for the life and freedom of an innocent hostage? The seminar is divided into two 90 minute sessions, and offers 3 CLE hours. Catered lunch will be served.
