Professor William C. Banks is an internationally recognized authority in national security law, counterterrorism, and constitutional law. Banks has helped set the parameters for the emerging field of national security law since 1987, co-authoring two leading texts in the field: National Security Law and Counterterrorism Law. In 2008, Banks was named the College of Law Board of Advisors Distinguished Professor at Syracuse University, where he has been a member of the faculty for over 30 years. National Security Law was first published in 1990 and is now in its fifth edition. Banks and his co-authors published Counterterrorism Law in 2007 to help define the emerging field of counterterrorism law, and the second edition was published in 2012. Banks is also the author of numerous other books, book chapters and articles including Counterinsurgency Law: New Dimensions in Asymmetric Warfare, Combating Terrorism (with Mitchel Wallerstein and Renee de Nevers), New Battlefields/Old Laws: Critical Debates from the Hague Convention to Asymmetric Warfare, “Legal Sanctuaries and Predator Strikes in the War on Terror,” “Programmatic Surveillance and FISA – Of Needles in Haystacks,” and “Providing ‘Supplemental Security’ – The Insurrection Act and the Military Role in Responding to Domestic Crises.”
