“Civil Liberties in Wartime” is the title of this year’s TePoel Lecture presented by Geoffrey Stone, one of America’s preeminent constitutional law scholars. The lecture is at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 26, in room 124 of Creighton University’s School of Law. A reception will follow in the Schneider Commons on the upper level of the law school.

Stone is the Harry Kalven Jr. Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Chicago Law School. His book Perilous Times: Free Speech in Wartime from the Sedition Act to the War on Terror, was the winner of the RFK Book Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in History.
