Hitting the Ground Running

We're excited about getting the 2011-2012 school year started, and introducing incoming UChicago law students in ACS and its mission. Coming up soon are a welcome barbeque, an introduction to ACS by our favorite Professor Geoff Stone, and our first lunch talk of the year, Professor Aziz Huq on 9/11, 10 Years Later.

The Atlantic recently published a Special Report on this same topic. Of particular interest: an addition to the National Defense Authorization Act, requiring all terror suspects to be put into immediate military custody; and redefining sovereignty under international law in light of the Libyan intervention.

Paul Smith on Litigation Promoting LGBT Rights

2011 has been a busy time for the University of Chicago ACS chapter so far. Events have included a talk by Professor Adam Cox on redistricting and the 2010 Census, which touched on this provocative paper (coauthored with Richard Holden of the Booth School and forthcoming in the University of Chicago Law Review), and a talk by Professor David Strauss on his new book, The Living Constitution.

Recently, a talk by Jenner & Block DC partner and Supreme Court litigator Paul Smith finally made it to the U of C Student Events podcast. Enjoy this look at the current status of litigation to promote LGBT rights!
