On Wednesday, April 23, the American Constitution Society at Harvard Law School will sponsor a talk on "Terrorism, Technology and Law Enforcement" by former Attorney General Janet Reno. The event, which is free and open to the public, will begin at 5 p.m. in the Ames Courtroom [Campus Map | Directions]. HLS Professor David Barron will make introductory remarks.
A 1963 graduate of Harvard Law School, Reno was appointed attorney general by President Bill Clinton in 1993, and was the first woman to hold that position. Her talk will focus on her experience as attorney general, and how it sheds light on issues of law enforcement and civil liberties in a time of terrorism.
The American Constitution Society is a national organization of progressive law students, law professors, practicing lawyers and judges, dedicated to increasing the debate about law.
