Subtitle: Congress and the Courts Respond. Immediately after 9/11, Congress authorized the use of armed force against those responsible for the attacks, thus assuring the President a powerful role as Commander-in-Chief. Yet as time went on, Congress and the courts alike would inevitably play increasingly important oversight roles in the exercise of executive power. Panelists discuss legislative and judicial responses to the Administration's actions, including whether U.S. counterterrorism policy reflects a true balance of power among the three "co-equal" branches. In particular, the panel addresses congressional enactments and the implications of recent Supreme Court decisions, including Boumediene v. Bush, 128 S. Ct. 2229 (2008), which struck down Congress' attempt to strip federal courts of habeas corpus jurisdiction over Guantanamo detainees. Moderator: Joseph Margulies. Panelists: Samuel V. Jones, Ambassador Pierre-Richard Prosper, Gabor Rona. For more information visit: http://washburnlaw.edu/ruleoflaw/
