Guiora Awarded Grant, Speaks at Oxford

Amos Guiora, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, has been invited by the University of Oxford to present public lectures from February 6-8, 2012, including “Targeted Killing: Exploring its Legality, Morality and Effectiveness.” Jeremy Waldron, Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory, Oxford, and University Professor, New York University Law School, will be the respondent.

The Earhart Foundation (Ann Arbor, Michigan) awarded Guiora a fellowship research grant; the grant will enable him to research his forthcoming book Extremism: What is it and What Dangers Does it Pose to Society. Guiora previously received a grant from the Stuart Family Foundation (Chicago, Illinois) for research in the Netherlands on the limits of free speech.
