The Georgetown University Law Center has launched an institute bringing together expert prosecutors and students to litigate high-profile cases in efforts to defend constitutional rights in matters such as discrimination, immigration, national security, privacy and whistleblower protection, the school announced Wednesday. The new Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection’s faculty director is Neal Katyal, who successfully argued Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, the 2006 Supreme Court decision that applied the Geneva Convention worldwide in the “War on Terror” and forced the Bush Administration to cease waterboarding.
