Students Participate in Campaign for Habeas Rights for Detainees

Students at Virginia Law and across the country today began two days of action calling for the restoration of habeas corpus and fair hearings for the almost 400 detainees who remain at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The campaign was organized by law students and coordinated by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), a nonprofit organization that represents many of the detainees at Guantanamo and coordinates the work of nearly 500 pro bono attorneys.
