Featured Presentation: “Law and the War on Terror: 21 Years and Counting” with ABF Research Professor Jothie Rajah

How do we make sense of law in relation to the unending war on terror? This presentation shows how, by excavating legal meanings and values in seemingly non-legal state discourse and cultural texts, the globalized discounting of life and persistent fostering of war becomes legible as the guiding legality of our contemporary times.

This presentation is in reference to her new book, Discounting Life: Necropolitical Law, Culture, and the Long War on Terror. 

Lunch Available at 12:00 p.m.
Presentation to commence at 12:30 p.m.

For in-person attendees only: This program will provide 1 hour of Professional Practice CLE credit for both experienced and newly-admitted attorneys.  Please note that, in accordance with CLE Board Regulations, if you are late or leave early, you will not receive CLE credit.
