Teach-in at Chapman University School of Law to focus on Bush administration torture


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

JOHN YOO, former Bush administration Office of Legal Counsel, drafted legal memos which, some say, influenced the U.S.’s decision to torture. He is a visiting professor at Chapman University School of Law, where the controversy continues.

Please join us for a Teach-In, with Panel and Q&A, along with complimentary coffee and breakfast, where we’ll be investigating:

• Whether Yoo is complicit in the commission of war crimes.
• Whether torture is deleterious to national security.
• The impact of torture on our basic human and civil rights.
• The relevant law: Geneva Conventions, U.S. Constitution and Treaties.
• What remedy is available to torture victims?

THIS EVENT IS FREE TO THE PUBLIC
