The Right to Privacy in the Digital Era: What Happens When an 18th-Century Constitution Meets 21st-Century Technology?

This year’s annual forum will focus on the Fourth Amendment. Our panelists will discuss:

  • What makes something an “unreasonable” search or seizure and when is a warrant required?
  • The Court's movement away from a property rights approach to a privacy rights approach, which includes assessing whether one's expectation of privacy is "objectively reasonable."
  • Recent cases involving searches of arrestees' cell phones and DNA, as well as suspects' cell-site location information.
