Emerging Privacy and Civil Liberties Issues

"Emerging Privacy and Civil Liberties Issues"
Wednesday, October 29, 2003
Columbia Law School,
Jerome Greene Hall, Room 103

Marc Rotenberg, Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) will discuss the dramatic expansion in government surveillance initiatives since 9/11 - including the employment of new surveillance techniques - and the implications for personal privacy and civil liberties.

EPIC, a public interest research center, was established in 1994 to focus public attention on emerging civil liberties issues and to protect privacy, the First Amendment, and constitutional values.

Mr. Rotenberg is an expert on privacy and civil liberties issues who has testified before Congress on many subjects, including access to information, encryption policy, computer security, and communications privacy.

He teaches information privacy law at Georgetown University Law Center. He is editor of The Privacy Law Sourcebook and co-editor (with Daniel J. Solove) of Information Privacy Law: Cases and Materials (forthcoming Aspen Publishing).

Pizza will be served to attendees.
