As part of the Donahue Lecture Series, hosted by the Suffolk University Law Review, James Bamford, a New York Times Bestselling Author and columnist for Foreign Policy Magazine, discussed the history and scope of the NSA’s surveillance practices. In case you missed Mr. Bamford’s lecture, entitled Espionage, Eavesdropping, Edward Snowden and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, you can watch it in its entirety here. Suffolk University Law Review extends a thank you to Mr. Bamford for taking the time to interact with the Suffolk University Law School community.
The 2015-2016 Donahue Lecture Series will continue on March 3, 2016, when the President of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Susan N. Herman, will come to Suffolk University Law School to discuss civil liberties in the context of the War on Terror. Ms. Herman has been the President of the ACLU since 2008 and has appeared on NPR, PBS, CSPAN, NBC, and MSNBC. Her most recent book is Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy, published in 2011. We hope to see you there!
Only two weeks after Ms. Herman’s lecture, the 2015-2016 Donahue Lecture Series will come to a close when Aloke Chakravarty, a federal prosecutor involved in the investigation and prosecution in the Boston Marathon bombing case, will speak. Stay tuned for more information.
