W&M students aiding Gitmo cases
Students in Professor Linda A. Malone's class International Litigation in U.S. Courts will conduct legal research and prepare memos for the chief prosecutor in the Pentagon's Office of Military Commissions, according to the college.
Six years ago, the same professor supervised students who aided the judges in the Iraqi Special Tribunal that tried Saddam Hussein.
About 25 students will participate in the Guantanamo prosecutions, including the U.S.S. Cole bombing case. "Each student will write a 25-30 page paper on complex, often novel, and highly sensitive legal issues confronted by military commissions prosecutors in the course of their work," the release states.
