Guantanamo and Habeas Corpus: American private sector lawyers step up to the plate

One of the ways America has shown its real stuff in the face of the persecution perpetrated in the name of the War in Terror has been the vast number of attorneys who have stepped up to the plate to put in hours and hours of pro bono work on behalf of detainees, largely on habeas corpus motions.

It would take a mega-website to do suggest the extent of this web of rights activism. But as a small nod in the direction of this effort, I will be listing links in this space to the centers of pro bono legal effort on the Guantanamo effort.

I'll start right here in Illinois:

Northwestern Law -- Roderick MacArthur Justice Center
