Professor of Law

Professor Mark Denbeaux, one of Seton Hall's most senior faculty members, is also the Director of the Seton Hall Law School Center for Policy and Research, which is best known for its dissemination of the internationally recognized series of reports on the Guantánamo Bay Detention Camp. Professor Denbeaux's interest in the conditions of detainment arose from his representation of two detainees there. Following his visits to GTMO, and his participation in amicus briefs arising from the rules governing the hearings for "enemy combatants," Professor Denbeaux realized the need for an analysis of the government's assumptions and the principles governing the detention process. The Guantánamo report series is primarily produced by Seton Hall Law students of all levels. Several graduates have remained research fellows, as well.
