Marjorie Cohn is president of the National Lawyers Guild and a professor at
Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where she teaches criminal law and
procedure, evidence, and international human rights law. She is author of
"Cowboy Republic: Six Ways the Bush Gang Has Defied the Law" that makes the
case for prosecuting Bush officials with exquisite legal detail in
straightforward, everyman language." She has just published "Rules of
Disengagement: The Politics and Honor of Military Dissent" which takes the
side of US service members who didn't check their conscience -- and their
sense of honor -- at the door when they signed up.

Free event, $5 donation suggested. $20 donation to include Prof. Cohn's new
book "Rules of Disengagement". Wheelchair accessible. Book signing will be
held. This event is a benefit for Courage to Resist in support of military
war resisters. Endorsed by Veterans for Peace SF Bay Area Chapter. For more
