*. John Yoo is a professor of law at the University of California at
Berkeley School of Law, and is best known for his work in the United States
Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel. In that role, Yoo served as a
key architect of the Bush administration's legal response to the terrorist
threat. Specifically, Yoo was central to drafting the 2001 passage of the USA
PATRIOT Act. The memos and opinions he authored argued that the
terrorist attacks created an emergency situation in America, and that
given this situation, the government may be justified in taking measures
which in less troubled conditions could be seen as infringements of
individual liberties. Yoo is the author of two books: War by Other Means:
An Insider's Account of the War on Terror (2006) and The Powers of War and
Peace: Foreign Affairs and the Constitution After 9/11 (2005). He holds a
BA, summa cum laude, in American history from Harvard University and
a juris doctor from Yale Law School. Yoo is a visiting scholar at the
American Enterprise Institute and a former Distinguished Fulbright Chair
in Law at the University of Trento (Italy).
