Steve Wax is a federal public defender in Portland, Oregon. He is also the author of the book “Kafka Comes to America” in which he shares his first-hand account of fighting for defendants’ rights in the war on terror. He has an incredible story to tell and we are pleased to have him on campus this February. Given the recent Portland Christmas bombing plot, this talk is very relevant to our area and issues faced by our country.
