S.J. Quinney College of Law

Ten years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the resulting war is largely ignored in the media and popular discussion. Yet the decision to remake Iraq is still impacting the balance of power in the Middle East, everyday Iraqis, the U.S. military, and others. What is the legacy of the Iraq war? Join the The Center for Global Justice and the S.J. Quinney Student Veterans Association for "The Iraq War: A Retrospective," a lunchtime panel on March 21st, Sutherland Moot Courtroom.



Professor Jim Holbrook will discuss the run-up to the war (the events that led to U.S. involvement).
Professor Amos Guiora will discuss detention, interrogation, and trial.
Professor Chibli Mallat will discuss the S.J. Quinney Global Justice Project: Iraq.
Caleb Proulx, 3L, will discuss the aftermath of the war and where the U.S. goes from here.
