LENS Conference 2015 | Erwin Chemerinsky, Civil Liberties in the Age of Forever War

February 27, 2015

The 2015 LENS Conference, Law in the Age of 'Forever War', focuses on the legal issues that accompany warfare in a time when technology, relationships between nations, and the abilities of non-state actors to affect the international stage, are all changing rapidly. Speakers address some of the difficult issues that have come to define modern law as it relates to warfare: targeting, surveillance, home-grown terrorism, intelligence gathering in the digital age, ensuring human rights and civil liberties.

Introduction: Professor Scott Silliman, Judge, US Court of Military Commission Review; and Director Emeritus, LENS

Speaker: Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Distinguished Professor of Law, and Raymond Pryke Professor of First Amendment Law, UC Irvine School of Law
