Description
ZERO DARK THIRTY & ENHANCED INTERROGATION TECHNIQUES—LESSONS IN LEGAL ETHICS
Presented by Professor John Sims

This talk will discuss the ethics of the situation in which a client wants an attorney to draft a legal opinion stating that a particular future course of action is legally sound and that attorney’s professional responsibility obligations.
Professor John Sims of Pacific McGeorge School of Law specializes in legal issues involving the Constitution, national security, human rights, and professional responsibility. After graduating from Georgetown University and serving as an editor of the Harvard Law Review, he clerked for Chief Judge Frank Coffin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. Then, in 1986, after 10 years with the public interest law firm founded by Ralph Nader, Prof. Sims joined the McGeorge law faculty. Professor Sims is a founding Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of National Security Law and Policy, a peer-reviewed law review devoted to the broad range of issues related to national defense.
