UCLA Law Review Scholar Forum: “Detention Without End?”


The UCLA Law Review’s Fall Scholar Forum for the 2013-14 academic year featuring Professor Jonathan Hafetz will be held on Thursday, October 24, at 12:15 p.m., in Room 1447. Professor Norman Abrams (UCLA School of Law) will give a formal response. Lunch will be served.

Professor Hafetz, whose article “Detention Without End? Reexamining the Indefinite Confinement of Terrorism Suspects Through the Lens of Criminal Sentencing” will be published in the January issue  of the UCLA Law Review (vol. 60, issue 2), teaches at Seton Hall University College of Law. At the Scholar Forum, Professor Hafetz will discuss how the application of criminal sentencing principles provides a helpful framework for reviewing the long-term detention of terrorism suspects at Guantanamo Bay.   

The Scholar Forum is made possible with the help of generous contributions by Sidley Austin LLP and Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP.​
