National security issues and their interplay with court systems, such as surveillance, detainment of alleged terrorists in Guantanamo and extraordinary rendition victims, will be the subject of the Winthrop and Frances Lane Foundation Lecture March 31 at the University of Nebraska College of Law.

Susan N. Herman, president of the American Civil Liberties Union and professor at Brooklyn Law School, will present "How the Bush/Obama War on Terror Threatens Ordinary Americans, Constitutional Rights, and Democracy" at noon in the Hamann Auditorium in Ross McCollum Hall, East Campus Loop and Fair Street.

Her lecture is based on her book, "Taking Liberties: The War on Terror and the Erosion of American Democracy," to be published in September by Oxford University Press. The talk is free and open to the public.
