A Lawyer's Responsibility: Protecting Civil Liberties in Wartime
Washington University Journal of Law & Policy
One of the lessons of American history is that when episodes of military conflict arise we not only compromise our liberties, but we do so excessively and to a degree we often come later to regret. The challenge is to understand why that happens, to avoid repeating the same pattern of mistakes in the present and in the future, and to articulate the role of lawyers in addressing those questions.
