2018 NACDL Conference: Combatting the Surveillance State

November 29, 2018 8:45 am to November 30, 2018 1:00 pm

Advanced technologies are revolutionizing how the government investigates, charges and prosecutes criminal cases—and defense attorneys must keep pace. Even small police departments can purchase powerful surveillance technologies, and internet companies collect vast troves of data on virtually everyone. This two-day CLE conference will discuss the government's use of technologically advanced investigative techniques in criminal cases, and the issues raised by those techniques under the Fourth Amendment and other federal law.

- What technologies and data sources do prosecutors and investigators have available to them?
- How do you know if the government electronically surveilled your client?
- Do surveillance technologies work as advertised?
- What Fourth Amendment and other arguments support suppression?

Our technology and legal experts will help you know the latest on how to defend cases involving advanced technologies.
