Benjamin Davis, UT associate professor of law, traveled last week to the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba. 

While there, he observed approximately 20 hours of military court proceedings, including pretrial hearings held for the self-proclaimed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed and his four alleged co-conspirators.

On Thursday, Feb. 7, from 11:50 a.m. to 12:50 p.m., Davis will discuss his experience in Law Center Room 1013.

Davis, a faculty member at the UT College of Law since 2003, is a contributing editor at the SALTLAW Blog. He has been addressing accountability for torture since early 2004 in law review articles, online articles, as a board member of the Human Rights Committee of the Society of American Law Teachers and as a member of the American Society of International Law.
