The Latest on the War on Terrorism from Scott Silliman

Noted expert on national security will speak at Perkins Library on Wednesday, 31 January

31 January, 7pm, Perkins Library Rare Book Room
Scott Silliman, a member of the Duke Law School faculty, is a professor of the practice of law and executive director of the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security.  He also holds appointments as an adjunct professor of law at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and at North Carolina Central University.  Silliman is known to National Public Radio listeners and CNN viewers for his frequent interviews and commentaries on issues related to national security.

 In addition to national security law, Silliman’s research interests include international humanitarian law, military law, and the law of armed conflict.  Current issues in the war on terrorism will be Silliman’s general theme for his Engaging Faculty Series lecture on 31 January.  However, the focus of his talk will be determined by events in the news when he speaks.  Likely topics are the prosecution of terrorists by military commissions, extraordinary rendition, and the use of NSA's resources for domestic electronic surveillance. Sponsored by the Friends of the Duke University Libraries.  Parking for this event has been reserved on the quad in front of the Duke Chapel.
