Lawyers are crucial and privileged interlocutors in efforts to challenge and end the US torture policy. Who are these lawyers representing torture victims of the “war on terror?” How has this work affected them politically and ideologically? What kinds of legal strategies and networking have resulted from the ongoing and collective lawyering on torture-related cases? What are the national and global ramifications of these ongoing legal struggles?
