Michael Ratner

Michael Ratner is President of the Center for Constitutional Rights, a nonprofit legal organization dedicated to protecting the rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. He served as co-counsel in the Supreme Court case of Rasul v. Bush, which established that detainees at Guantanamo Bay had the right to invoke habeas corpus. He continues to fight against the undermining of fundamental rights in the name of the "war on terror" by representing victims of torture, rendition, and domestic spying. He has taught at Yale Law School and Columbia University Law School and is the author of many books and articles. In 2006, he was included by the National Law Journal on the list of the "100 Most Influential Lawyers in America." Mr. Ratner will speak about the erosion of civil rights following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
