Lawyers (BAAML) presents: "Can Your Clients Be Prosecuted for Thought Crimes?"

  • 08 Jun 2011
  • 6:30 PM
  • Reed Smith, 101 Second Street, San Francisco
In the wake of the Supreme Court's 2010 decision in the Humanitarian Law Project case, questions have emerged about the extent to which speech and advocacy are potentially subject to prosecution under the material support standard upheld in that case. A series of investigations in Chicago and Minneapolis may suggest one set of answers to the question, with profound consequences for individuals and organizations engaged in speech and advocacy. This subject matter will be crucially relevant to lawyers whose practice includes civil rights issues or policy matters related to oversight of executive and investigative agencies. This discussion will be led by Shahid Buttar, Executive Director of Bill of Rights Defense Committee. http://www.bordc.org/about/staff.php
