9/11 and the law

Today marks the 10th anniversary of 9/11, for New Yorkers and many around the world it is a day of remembrance. It is also a day of reflection in which many of us will examine the impact of the attacks on our daily lives. As attorneys and law students, we also see the legal ramifications on our individual rights and liberties. The New York Law Journal recently published a number of essays in a special report entitled "9/11 and the Law: The Impact on How Lawyers Do Business and Courts Dispense Justice." This special report consists of a number of essays written by judges, legal directors and other attorneys. Each essay discusses the balance between liberty and security within the realm of the government's post-9/11 policies. Read the full article here.
