About the event: How should the legal system adjust to our evolving and oftentimes conflicting expectations of privacy? The symposium will bring together some of the nation's foremost practitioners and academics to address the conflict between privacy and our core values.

The symposium will begin Thursday evening with an interactive talk on robots, drones, and the civilian uses of military technology. On Friday, we will feature panels on privacy and its conflicting values, such as the First Amendment. The symposium will close with a keynote on Friday evening.
