Presentation Date



Harvard Law School professors Gabriella Blum and Philip B. Heymann discuss their award-winning book, Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists: Lessons from the War on Terrorism (MIT Press 2010), at the 2010 IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law/Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize Lecture.

In their book, Laws, Outlaws, and Terrorists, Professors Blum and Heymann reject the argument that traditional American values embodied in domestic and international law can be ignored in any sustainable effort to keep the United States safe from terrorism. They argue that the costs are great and the benefits slight from separating security and the rule of law.
