Neighborhood Professor: Pearl Harbor, 9-11 and American Law

Our Neighborhood Professor series continues into its second month with a discussion by Wayne State University professor of law and political science Brad R. Roth at 7pm on Wednesday, December 7th.

Professor Roth will be speaking on Pearl Harbor and its Lasting Effects. This presentation will focus on the daunting questions about the role of law in bridling the exercise of power, both at home and abroad, in the service of national security. Legal precedents from that conflict continue to haunt U.S. constitutional jurisprudence.
