Flawed Justifications: Warrantless NSA Wiretapping

There has never been a more urgent need to preserve fundamental privacy protections and our system of checks and balances than the need we face today, as illegal government spying, provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act and government-sponsored torture programs transcend the bounds of law and our most treasured values in the name of national security.

Panelists:

Mark Schlossberg, is the Police Practice Legal Policies Director, of the ACLU Northern CA.

The American Civil Liberties Union is the only national organization dedicated to defending and expanding the civil liberties of all people.

Lee Tien is a senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF).

He works on free speech and privacy issues. Since 9/11 he has worked on a variety of topics including electronic surveillance, National Security Letters, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, data-mining, biometrics and RFID. He has written law review articles on anonymous speech, software as speech, encryption and data-mining. He did his undergraduate work at Stanford University and his law degree at UC-Berkeley.

Location: New College of Law, 50 Fell Street, Room 213

Date: Monday, April 17th, 1:00 – 2:15 p.m.
