The University of Chicago Blog contained a debate last week on “Torture, Law and War”. Below is the summary of the debate. 

This week’s Faculty Podcast episode features a panel from the “Torture, Law, and War” conference held at the Law School earlier this year; the panel includes 2007-8 Law and Philosophy Fellow (and current Visiting Scholar) Scott Anderson, Kirkland and Ellis Professor of Law Eric Posner, and Rutgers University’s Jeff McMahan. They discussed the questions:   Should the law absolutely ban coercive interrogation?  And can and should it really mean it?
