A closer examination of the procedure and practice in the United States: A report prepared by Oxford Pro Bono Publico for the Joint Committee on Human Rights (March 2012)

A follow-up to the 2011 comparative report on secret evidence, requested by the JCHR. It focused on the operation of security-cleared counsel in US habeas corpus proceedings as well as the US doctrine of State secrets privilege in order to help the JCHR assess whether those aspects of US practice should be adopted in the UK.
