Civil Liberties in Wartime


Civil liberties are one of the casualties of war. This course will begin by looking at the loss of civil liberties during World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War. With the benefit of hindsight, we will analyze the current conditions including USA Patriot Act, military commissions, and secret deportation hearings. Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-Legal majors.
