LAWS 7722 National Security: Anatomy of a Prosecution (Spring: 2 )

Course Description

This course will examine how the “war on terror” plays out in a crucial forum: the Article III trial courts. The goals are twofold: to focus on how complex prosecutions actually unfold in an actual case; and, to consider how doctrinal issues are shaped and resolved in the course of a trial. The subject of our study will be the 35 day prosecution of Tarek Mehanna for a range of terrorism offenses, including the provision of material support to terrorists, and conspiracy to kill abroad
