Dan Diker is interviewing Prof. William C. Banks, Founding Director, Institute for National Security and Counter-Terrorism (INSCT), & Interim Dean, College of Law Dean Hannah Arterian, Syracuse University, United States of America.
Professor William C. Banks is recognized internationally as an expert in constitutional law, national security law, and counter-terrorism. Since 1987, when the Federation of American Scientists asked him to provide a legal perspective on first use of nuclear weapons, Banks has helped set the parameters for the relatively new field of national security law. Banks co-wrote the leading text in the field. National Security Law was first published in 1990 and is now in its fourth edition. Banks and his co-authors published counter-terrorism Law in 2007 to help define the emerging field of counter-terrorism law.
