Alumni-Faculty Breakfast Focuses on Guantanamo Bay Issues
The UW Law School Alumni Association, with help from Dorsey & Whitney LLP, will host an Alumni-Faculty Breakfast focusing on the topic of indefinite detention faced by detainees at the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Moderated by the Hon. Richard A. Jones '75, the event features Joshua Colangelo-Bryan ’99, a senior attorney in Dorsey & Whitney, and Professor Eric Schnapper.
Colangelo-Bryan devotes a portion of his practice to matters involving human rights issues, including the representation of Guantanamo Bay detainees, and has represented six men detained for years at Guantanamo Bay without charge or trial. Schnapper, who teaches civil rights, civil procedure, and employment discrimination at the law school, has won three U.S. Supreme Court cases and is a recognized expert in the areas of civil rights, discrimination, terrorism, and the law. Jones was recently appointed District Court Judge for the Western District of Washington state.
Cost is $45 per person and one general CLE credit is available.
