QuickTime Video

The confirmation hearings for Attorney General Michael Mukasey raised numerous legal and constitutional issues relating to the interplay of national security, civil liberties, and the separation of powers. The positions of the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and of the then-nominated, now-confirmed, Attorney General present a rich variety of views of the Constitution, the balance of powers among the three Branches of government, and the pressures on both in a time of international conflict. A panel of experts in both Cambridge and Washington will analyze these positions and consider whether and what the views of the new Attorney General will add to the legal mix.
