National Security and Civil Liberties: Individual Rights

The third of three panel discussions at SMU on October 22, 2011, at the conference on "National Security and Civil Liberties" was concerned individual rights. The conference was sponsored by SMU's John Goodwin Tower Center for Political Studies and the Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility. The panel was chaired by journalist Lee Cullum and included Jeffrey Kahn, Associate Professor of Law in SMU Dedman School of Law, Jeffrey Bellin, Assistant Professor of Law in SMU Dedman School of Law, and Becky Gregory, former U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of Texas. The day-long conference stimulated dialogue, scholarship, andreflection in the academy and wider community about the need to effectively and ethically pursue U.S. national security imperatives without undermining the country's historic commitment to civil liberties.
