2017 Symposium: Katz at 50: The Fourth Amendment in the Digital Age
Join us for ACLR's 2017 symposium, "Katz at 50: The Fourth Amendment in the Digital Age" on Friday, March 3, 2017.
This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Katz v. United States. That decision -- which introduced the notion of a "reasonable expectation of privacy" as the standard for defining searches under the Fourth Amendment -- has shaped the landscape of Fourth Amendment jurisprudence and defined the ways in which we approach crime, privacy, and national security.
On March 3, 2017, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers will come together to analyze the legacy of the Katz decision and discuss how it has shaped our work in these fields and affected different communities in our society. Most notably, we will evaluate whether Katz remains a viable Fourth Amendment in today's digital world, asking ourselves the question: if not privacy, then what?
We encourage you to join us for each of our discussions, listed on the event page, as well as our cocktail reception following the event.
The American Criminal Law Review's 2017 Symposium is co-sponsored by the Georgetown Center on Privacy & Technology, the Georgetown Center on National Security and the Law, and the Georgetown Law Technology Review.
RSVP for the event here.
