    Ramzi Kassem, Associate Professor of Law and Director of the Immigrant & Non-Citizen Rights Clinic at the City University of New York will present a talk entitled "'Zero Dark Thirty' and Torture in American Discourse." The Oscar-nominated film Zero Dark Thirty has reignited the controversy about the place of torture in American policy. Professor Ramzi Kassem will explore what the ongoing debate reveals—and what it obscures—about American counterterrorism efforts and the United States’ current legal and moral standing. Presented by the Department of Anthropology, the National Security Clinic, the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, the Department of Sociology, and the South Asia Institute.

Scholarships to PLI's other IP programs will also be discussed.

    If you have an undergrad degree (or at least about two years of coursework) in engineering, computer sciences or the hard sciences (chemistry, biology, physics, some related fields), and are interested in becoming a Patent Agent or Attorney, you are invited to attend.

    Pizza will be served. RSVP by Friday, February 22, on UT Law Symplicity by selecting the "Events" tab.

    Assault & Flattery presents

    To celebrate our diamond anniversary, A&F is bringing you our take on the revered classic, the story of Harry Potter. In Harry Potter and the Order of the Peregrinus, Harry and his motley crew of nerdy magic law students fight against the Slythegreens to secure the most desirable jobs that The Magic University of Texas Magic School of Magic Law can offer. Unfortunately, coming to the Slythegreens' aid is none other than Snemily Snadens, Voldemort's ally and the gatekeeper to the highly-sought-after judicial clerkships that all the magic law students sooooo covet. Only after watching the show will you discover who ultimately prevails in the job search! ...And also, who wouldn't want to see Assault & Flattery ruin another one of your favorite stories?
