To wrap up International Law Week, we have one final interview, this time with Professor Erik Luna about his brand new Law and Terrorism seminar.
In this course students study the rapidly evolving and controversial field of legal responses to terrorism and examine a series of topics, including domestic criminal law related to terrorism, civil actions for terrorist incidents, foreign investigation and capture of suspects, terrorism-related searches and seizures, special pre-trial and trial procedures, the role of international law, military detentions and tribunals, and the use of extraordinary measures against suspected terrorists. This class has about twenty students and is one of many small seminars W&L Law students have an opportunity to take during their upper-level years.

Earlier this week, we sat down to talk with Professor Luna about his new course.
