Harvard Law School professors Gabriella Blum and Philip B. Heymann will discuss their award-winning book, Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists: Lessons from the War on Terrorism (MIT Press 2010), at the 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law/Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize Lecture. The program will begin at noon.
In their book, Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists, Professors Blum and Heymann reject the argument that traditional American values embodied in domestic and international law can be ignored in any sustainable effort to keep the United States safe from terrorism. They argue that the costs are great and the benefits slight from separating security and the rule of law.
The IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law/Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize was established in 2007 by Chicago-Kent alumnus Roy C. Palmer and his wife, Susan, to honor an exemplary work of scholarship exploring the tension between civil liberties and national security in contemporary American society.
