Brinkema to discuss terror trials

As debate rages over how and where to try accused terror mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, a Virginia federal judge with terror trial experience will address the management of high visibility cases this month at Washington & Lee University.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema will speak at W&L on Tuesday, March 16. According to the school, Brinkema will discuss balancing the demands of national security in international terrorism cases with the intense scrutiny such cases draw from the media and the public.

Brinkema presided over the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, the first person to be convicted for crimes related to the 9/11 attacks.
