The Digital Fourth Amendment: Emerging Issues and Challenges
Thursday, January 17, 2019 | 5:00 PM - 7:05 PM
This panel discussion will explore how the Fourth Amendment can protect privacy rights in the digital age. The speakers will address recent shifts in Supreme Court doctrine through the lens of four emerging topics: (1) the use of “Stingrays” for cell phone surveillance; (2) digital searches and seizures of electronic devices; (3) account searches and the “third-party doctrine”; and (4) government hacking. The program will provide a short introduction to each issue, teach lawyers to identify them in their cases, and suggest key Fourth Amendment arguments for challenging them in court.
This program is co-sponsored by the C. Willard Heckel Inn of Court at Rutgers Law School. Membership information and application available at law.rutgers.edu/heckel-inn-court and will also be available at the door. Registration fee may be applied toward annual dues.
