About the Legal Team:

Charles Swift is an attorney and former Navy officer, who retired in 2007 as a Lieutenant Commander in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps. While in the JAG Corps, he worked principally in the area of criminal defense, earning a reputation as a premier trial attorney. Most noteworthy is his quest for justice at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, concluding with the Supreme Court’s landmark decision in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld.

He has received numerous awards for his advocacy, including recognition as a Distinguished Alumnus at Seattle University School of Law, ACLU’s Roger Baldwin Medal for Distinguished Service, and was runner-up for Lawyer of the Year in 2005 as well as being named one of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers in 2006 by the National Law Journal. Following his military career, Charles was a visiting professor and head of the Humanitarian Law Clinic at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta, Georgia, before leaving to enter private practice in Seattle.

Ahmed Ghappour is a Clinical Instructor at the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. He also directs the National Security Defense Project, an access to justice initiative that raises constitutional challenges in national security and cyber security cases.

Before founding the NSDP, he worked with Charles Swift, and took numerous national security cases to trial. Prior to that, Ahmed was a Staff Attorney at Reprieve UK, where he represented Guantanamo detainees in their habeas corpus proceedings and challenged the US Extraordinary Renditions Program. He was also a senior legal advisor at a Cairo based human rights organization, where he worked on security sector reform, transparency and privacy, and international accountability litigation. Ahmed is also a computer engineer and hacked on high performance computers at SGI, Inc. before pursuing a career in the law.
