Prof. Chris Jenks at Guantanamo

SMU Dedman School of Law Assistant Professor Chris Jenks, director of the Criminal Justice Clinic, is visiting Naval Station Guantanamo in Cuba Aug. 11-15 on behalf of the National Institute of Military Justice. Prof. Jenks will observe military commission proceedings involving detainees alleged to have planned the 9/11 attacks — and will blog about the experience.

Prior to joining SMU, Prof. Jenks worked at the Pentagon as a Judge Advocate, serving as chief of the U.S. Army’s international law branch. As a military prosecutor he was lead counsel on the Army’s first counter-terrorism case, a fully contested classified court-martial of a National Guard soldier who attempted to aid the al-Qaida terrorist network.
