On June 12, 2008, the US Supreme Court ruled that Lakhdar Boumediene, a Guantanamo Bay detainee, has a right to habeas corpus under the US Constitution. The four distinguished panelists discussed the history and impact of this landmark case in terms of what it means for US detention policy in front of WCL students and staff as well as outside visitors from the human rights and legal field.
