Episode 15: The Legal Legacy of 9/11, Part I

On Part I of our Legal Legacy of 9/11 series, we focus specifically on domestic extremism and how we can avoid repeating the same post-9/11 mistakes when it comes to confronting this domestic threat. In the weeks and months following 9/11, the U.S. government adopted an aggressive preventative approach to international counterterrorism. This approach was seen through expansive new legislation, sweeping executive branch actions, and even with how the government was reorganized with counterterrorism as the defining priority. The 20th anniversary of 9/11 is an opportunity to examine what lessons we can learn from this post 9/11 approach in an effort to ensure we do not repeat the same mistakes going forward. Join Debra Perlin for her interview with Shirin Sinnar, from Stanford Law School, and Michael German, from the Brennan Center, for this look back at the legal legacy of 9/11.
