The Center for American and International Law (CAIL), Project Aletheia at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and American University Washington College of Law Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law held a conference Sept. 27 entitled “Bridging the Gap Between Science and Practice of Interrogation.”
Leading academic, law enforcement, and legal experts convened at the American University Washington College of Law in Washington, D.C. to discuss recent high-profile incidents involving police tactics in the context of emerging interrogation-related research.
Mark Fallon, member of the CERL Advisory Council and co-founder of Project Aletheia, participated in the first session, which addressed the principles on effective interviewing.
CERL Executive Board members Alberto Mora—past Associate Executive Director for Global Programs, Director of Rule of Law Initiative, American Bar Association, and former Department of the Navy General Counsel—and Harvey Rishikof—Chair, American Bar Association Standing Committee on Law and National Security and former Convening Authority Military Commissions—were panelists on a session entitled “Ethical Crisis & Moral Dilemma in Criminal Justice: A Rule of Law Perspective.”
