Is the United States Above the Law of Human Rights?


Location: 1130 Eck Hall of Law


Drone strikes that kill with military force beyond armed conflict zones. Indefinite detention at Guantanamo Bay. Immigrants held for months or years, waiting to be heard by a judge. Do the U.S. Courts hold any recourse for these wrongs? Join Notre Dame Law School professors Douglass Cassel and Mary Ellen O'Connell for a discussion of these issues and how they relate to U.S. adherence to international norms.

Presented by the Hispanic Law Students Association, and co-sponsored by the Notre Dame Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, The International Human Rights Society at Notre Dame Law School, and The Center for Civil and Human Rights.
