UT Law students to hear their arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court on December 5, 2007

UT Law’s new National Security & Human Rights Clinic is one of a handful of law school clinics that directly represent detainees at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. On December 5, arguments created by the clinic’s students and their professors will be presented before the United States Supreme Court in the Al Odah litigation, which will determine if detainees at Guantánamo have the right to present their Geneva Conventions claims in federal court.
