Law and Disorder is a weekly, independent radio program airing on several stations across the United States and podcasting on the web. Law and Disorder gives listeners access to rare legal perspectives on issues concerning civil liberties, privacy, right to dissent and the horrendous practices of torture exercised by the US government. This program examines the political forces and legislation that are moving the United States into a police state.
Three of the top progressive attorneys and activists host the show: Michael Ratner is the president of the Center for Constitutional Rights and author of Guantanamo: What the World Should Know. Michael has worked for decades, as a crusader for human rights both at home and abroad litigating many cases against international human rights violators resulting in millions of dollars in judgments for abuse victims and expanding the possibilities of international law. Heidi Boghosian is the A.J. Muste Memorial Institute, a nonprofit charitable foundation providing support to the nonviolent movement for social change. She has published articles on policing, protest and the First Amendment including Punishing Protest and The Assault on Free Speech, Public Assembly, and Dissent. Michael Steven Smith is the author, editor, and co-editor of six books, mostly recently Imagine: Living In A Socialist U.S.A. He has testified before committees of the United States Congress and the United Nations on human rights issues.
