Law Dean Appointed to Task Force on Terrorism and Law

Boston College Law School Dean John H. Garvey was recently named to the American Bar Association's newly-formed Task Force on Terrorism and the Law, a group of experts who will offer counsel to United States political leaders regarding upcoming legislation relating to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The ABA task force is comprised of leaders with expertise in law and national security, constitutional law, immigration law, civil rights, criminal justice, tort and insurance practice, business law, and science and technology. They will examine law-related policy issues reflected in the terrorist attacks, assess existing association policy on these issues, determine what revisions are needed or additional areas should be addressed, and bring policy recommendations to the ABA board of governors for consideration.

Joining Garvey on the task force are BC Law alumni Richard Campbell '74 of Campbell, Campbell & Edwards, and Michael S. Greco '72 of Hill & Barlow, both located in Boston.
