The ABA Criminal Justice Project
Professor Andrew Ferguson, an Assistant Professor of Law at the David A. Clarke School of Law (UDC) helped developed the American Bar Association’s Criminal Justice Section newest project – “The Citizen Amicus Project.” The project is a web-based effort to get law students to contribute to the national dialogue about the Fourth Amendment.
This term, the CAP is looking at United States v. Jones (the warrantless GPS case). The goal of the Citizen Amicus Project is to create a repository of “student-amicus” insights on whether the warrantless GPS tracking violated an “expectation … that society is prepared to recognize as reasonable." (Katz).
The ACLR encourages any readers to explore the Project, which can be found here: http://www.americanbar.org/groups/criminal_justice/citizen_amicus.html
United States v. Jones will be argued in November.
