Jenner and Block Partner To Speak On Guantanamo
Jeff Colman, a partner at Jenner and Block in Chicago, will visit the University of Wisconsin at Madison to give a public talk regarding his experience representing detainees held at the U.S. Naval Base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
The talk, entitled “Guantanamo and The Rule of Law,” is hosted by the University’s Law School, the College of Letters and Science, and the Frank J. Remington Center.
Colman has visited Guantanamo 10 times in the last three years. Jenner and Block has represented 19 men at the base. Colman personally represented four of them. 13 of these men have been released in the past two years. Three of those men were Colman’s clients. All spent more than four years imprisoned in Guantanamo.
The talk will occur on Monday, March 9.
