Sixth Annual SABAW Banquet!
Our Association is committed to being a resource for South Asian attorneys, law students, and members of the South Asian community. Our mission includes supporting the South Asian legal community and diversifying the legal profession by providing scholarships for law students, networking events, pro bono service, and supporting various minority bar initiatives. The annual banquet is an opportunity to honor and support these efforts and celebrate our vibrant community!
The program includes Perkins Coie partners Harry Schneider, Joe McMillan and Charles Sipos who will provide a behind-the-scenes account of their experience as part of the defense team of lawyers appointed to defend Salim Ahmed Hamdan, widely known as Osama bin Laden's personal driver. They will review federal court litigation filed in Seattle that eventually led to the United States Supreme Court 2006 landmark decision, Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, considered to be one of the Court's most important decisions on the limits of presidential power. The speakers also will provide an analysis of the 2008 trial at Guantanamo Bay in which Mr. Hamdan became the first defendant accused by the United States of committing war crimes in the war on terror to be tried before a Military Commission. It remains the only case to be tried to verdict at Guantanamo.
