Georgetown University Law Center is the law school of Georgetown University, located in Washington, D.C.. Established in 1870, the Law Center offers J.D., LL.M., and S.J.D. degrees in law. As the second largest law school in the United States, Georgetown Law often touts the advantages of its wide range of program offerings and proximity to federal agencies and courts, including the Supreme Court.

Georgetown Law is one of the most prestigious institutions of legal education in the United States. The Law Center is one of the top ten most selective law schools in the United States, as well as one of the 14 law schools that consistently rank at the very top of U.S. News and World Report's annual rankings.

The Georgetown University Law Center wanted students and faculty to be able to attend meetings and lectures in real time, regardless of their physical location. The school also needed to help ensure that education could continue even if the H1N1 virus developed into a pandemic. After implementing WebEx solutions, Georgetown can now reach students no matter where they're located and can continue to deliver instruction without the disruption posed by threats like the H1N1 flu virus.

Rep. Peter King "does not have a clue" about all that American Muslims have done to help the FBI, CIA and law enforcement agencies after 9/11, says Imam Yahya Hendi, president of Clergy Beyond Borders and recipient of an FBI award for his wide-ranging efforts to help young Muslims understand "what it means to be a proud Muslim yet a proud American." Imam Hendi says he fears the hearings of the House Committee on Homeland Security may "paralyze so many possibilities" for young Muslims who dream of joining the FBI, CIA or law enforcement agencies by sending them the message, "No, you don't belong to America." How do you feel about Muslim Americans serving in the CIA, FBI, and other law enforcement agencies?

Avowed globalist and architect of the Model State Health Emergency Powers Act ends a speech about how we all need "Global Health Governance" imposed with the financing and control of the IMF and World Bank with two questions. The first question is from a Professor in the Philosophy Department and the second is from Nathan M. Hansen, attorney in North St. Paul, Minnesota. The question from the latter highlights that it is the very people Prof. Gostin is working for who have caused the problems. Notice how his body language changes as some real questions are asked about his agenda. Check Larry Gostin's Wikipedia page (complete with a link to is 38 page CV):

Imam Yahya Hendi says his main goal is to help de-radicalize young Muslim men and women who have become radicalized. And to do this, he says, we must all work together. For Muslim youth to be part of the nation, they must feel they are liked, wanted and cared for. "I want the Jews and Christians of America to reach out to Muslims and say, 'Listen our fellow Muslim, you are part of America,'" Imam Hendi says. In return, Muslims must reach out with a positive and authentic message of Islam - of love, compassion and justice. How can non-Muslims reach out to Muslims in America and make them feel more welcome? Is this something that we all should be doing?
