The Washington & Lee and greater Lexington communities are cordially invited to Washington & Lee University School of Law’s Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice 2013 Symposium, "Discrimination Against Muslim Americans in a Post-9/11 World," to be held Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, 9:30am-3:00pm, in the Moot Courtroom in Sydney Lewis Hall. The symposium will include panels on "Muslims in America Today" and "Sharia Law: What it is, what it isn’t, and what role it should have in the courts." The symposium will also include a lunchtime keynote lecture by Nancy Hollander, one of the most prominent criminal defense attorneys in the country, on the constitutional violations in the case of the Holy Land Five, who ran the largest Muslim charity in the United States until they were indicted in 2004 on charges of providing “material support to terrorism.” You can find out more about the symposium on the JCRSJ website at http://law.wlu.edu/post911.
