I will be again debating Berkeley Law Professor and former Bush official John Yoo on war powers. This will be our third debate on the subject and will be held in Washington, D.C. at George Washington University. The event will be held on Wednesday at noon in the Moot Court Room at the law school.
Yoo is the Heller Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley, and a visiting scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. He served as Deputy Assistant U.S. Attorney General in the Office of Legal Counsel, Department of Justice (OLC), during George W. Bush and is considered one of the authors of the “torture memos.”
Professor Peter Raven-Hansen (who has written extensively on national security law) will serve as our moderator.
