HAMDAN TRIAL: PROFESSOR NEAL KATYAL
Professor Neal Katyal of Georgetown University will
speak about the Hamdan v. Rumsfeld trial.
Katyal was formerly a national security advisor for
the Justice Department and is well-known for his
advocacy of pro bono legal work. He was lead
counsel for Hamdan, the alleged bodyguard and
personal driver of Osama bin Laden. Katyal won
in the District Court of D.C. in 2004, but was
overturned by the Court of Appeals in 2005. He
recently argued successfully in front of the Supreme
Court this past summer. He will discuss the
case and its constitutional concerns in detail.
