    Advanced Civil Liberties and National Security after September 11 (21549). 2 units, credit/fail. This clinic focuses on civil liberties and human rights cases arising out of U.S. government counterterrorism policies, such as the detention of terrorism suspects in the U.S., Guantanamo and Bagram, the misuse of law enforcement techniques such as the immigration and material witness detention powers, and accountability of government officials for the unlawful detention and interrogation of terrorism suspects. Students engage in all aspects of the clinic's demanding impact litigation docket, whether through direct representation, amicus curiae briefs, or policy advocacy. This course is open only to students who completed the Civil Liberties and National Security after 9/11 seminar and beginning clinic. The class will have periodic group classes in addition to weekly supervision sessions. Permission of the instructor required. M.J. Wishnie.
