Symposium to reflect on legal ramifications of September 11 attack

The Wayne Law Review is pleased to host its upcoming symposium, "9/11 and the legal landscape: A decade later," from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 4, in Wayne State University Law School's Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium.

The symposium addresses some of the major legal issues presented by the Sept. 11 attacks. Specifically, it will explore the role of executive power and counterterrorism efforts, privatization of military operations, the intersection of counterterrorism efforts and civil liberties, and the legal ramifications of Guantanamo.

Jeffrey Rosen, law professor at George Washington University and legal affairs editor of The New Republic, will be the keynote speaker. Rosen's most recent book is "The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries that Defined America."

The symposium will be divided into three panel sessions featuring a number of noted legal experts.

The symposium, which is presented with the assistance of the Cohn family and the Wayne State University Dean of Students Office, is free and open to the public. To register for this event, visit or call (313) 577-3082. Contact Elizabeth Kruman at for more information.
