Eric Blinderman took a leave of absence from his job at Proskauer Rose to serve in Iraq. He worked first as Associate General Counsel for the Coalition Provisional Authority, and later as Chief Litigation Counsel and Associate Deputy to the Regime Crimes Liaison's Office. Eric advised the Iraqi High Tribunal as it prosecuted members of the former regime, including Saddam Hussein.
One of our blog readers and fellow blogger, Professor Meredith R. Miller at Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, shared with us an podcast interview with Eric about his experiences there. Click here. It's on her blog, The Slippery Slope. She's also a contributing editor on the Contracts Law Prof Blog.
