Would you represent Osama bin Laden?
If he had been captured alive it is clear that some competent attorney or legal team would have to represent him.
What about Timothy McVeigh?
He was represented by Stephen Jones.
Representing accused terrorists obviously requires a unique set of skills and clearances.
As the ABAJournal has pointed out, a practice niche in terrorism law is developing in at least New York City.
Are you prepared to be referred to as a member of the "terror bar"?
A lawyer who is prepared to represent terrorist obviously needs to obtain security clearances for themselves and their staff, and understand the laws concerning classified information.
I had never thought about it before, but obviously there is a need. Do you have what it takes to make yourself part of this niche practice group?
