STATE BAR HOSTS FREE PUBLIC LAW FORUM -
TERRORISM AND CIVIL LIBERTIES IN OUR POST 9/11 WORLD

 

In today’s post 9/11 world, keeping our homeland secure without threatening our civil liberties is a daunting task which generates daily headlines. To educate the public about these legal issues and explore the changes that have occurred since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, the Maryland State Bar Association is presenting a free public law forum on Thursday, February 19, 2004, in the Krongard Room, at the University of Maryland School of Law, 500 West Baltimore Street, Baltimore, Maryland, from 12 noon to 1:30 PM

Prominent Maryland attorneys Harvey Eisenberg, Anti-Terrorism Task Force Coordinator for the United States Attorney's Office for the District of Maryland, and David Rocah, Staff Attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland, will be the featured speakers in this engaging debate.  Professor Michael Greenberger, Director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland, will serve as moderator and entertain questions from the audience.

The Terrorism Public Law Forum, which is open to all members of the public, is sponsored by the Maryland State Bar Association’s Public Awareness Committee as a public service.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own brown bag lunch, and light refreshments will be served.  All attendees must show photo ID to enter the University of Maryland School of Law.
