April 8, 2009 (NEW YORK) -- On Wednesday, April 15, 2009, NYU School of Law’s Center on Law and Security will host a conference, in partnership with the Magna Carta Institute, focused on the courts, national security, and how transatlantic counterparts handle alleged terrorism suspects in the criminal justice system.

During the conference, called “The Courts and Terrorism: Transatlantic Observations,” participants will engage in panel discussions considering lessons learned before and after 9/11 concerning matters of detention, evidentiary standards, and trial procedure in terrorism cases; the differences among countries; the successes and failures of different strategies; and the potential need for structural and statutory reforms. The panels will also examine the potential benefits of enhancing compatibilities among countries in the transatlantic alliance.

The conference will take place at NYU School of Law, Greenberg Lounge, Vanderbilt Hall, 40 Washington Square South (between Sullivan and Macdougal Streets). The event is free and open to the public. To make a press reservation, please call 212.992.8640 or e-mail margaret.mcquade@nyu.edu.
