Professor Philip Heymann, the James Barr Ames Professor of Law
at Harvard Law School, will speak on Privacy, National Security,
and New Technology in Intelligence. Note time change.
Professor Heymann's global work has reached from Guatemala, to Peru, Northern Ireland, the Palestinian Authority, South Africa, and Russia. At Harvard Law School he leads efforts to encourage national and international public service by lawyers. He was appointed by President Carter to lead the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice, and by President Clinton to serve as Deputy Attorney General of the United States. Heymann has authored and edited seven books and numerous articles. His book, Terrorism and America, was described by Ariel Merari, the founder and former commander of Israel's Hostage Negotiation and Crisis Management Team, as by far the best treatise on coping with terrorism.
This seminar is open to Harvard students, fellows, faculty, and staff on first come first served basis.
