The Future of Military Commissions: 2007 and Beyond
12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
This National Institute of Military Justice (NIMJ) program will explore issues surrounding the military commissions. A diverse panel of experts will discuss recent developments, including the Military Commissions Act of 2006 and the Manual for Military Commissions that was issued in January. The panelists will offer their views on the future of military commissions and comment on the larger debate about how this chapter of history will shape the future of the American civilian and military justice systems. After brief opening presentations, the panel will entertain questions from the audience.
