Professor Marjorie Cohn analyzes the six major ways she feels the Bush administration has violated US and international law. In her view, since 9/11 the Bush administration has used the "war on terror" as an excuse for the illegal invasion of other countries, torture, illegal spying on Americans, summary executions and willful killing, the Guantánamo Gulag and refusal to execute the law. Professor Cohn also discusses political responses and explains legal remedies. (A special lecture offered by Lawyers Rights Watch Canada and UBC Continuing Studies, originally presented on 23-Feb-2008.)
