May 11, 2017 by NCC Staff


Leading experts consider the future of the Fourth Amendment in the digital age, reflect on the challenges that new technologies pose to privacy, and discuss how best to balance privacy and security in the 21st century.

Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, delivers a keynote address entitled "What Would Brandeis Do in the Digital Age?", followed by a panel discussion moderated by Constitution Center senior fellow in constitutional studies Tom Donnelly and featuring Jim Harper, Vice President of the Competitive Enterprise Institute; Jennifer Daskal, Associate Professor of Law at American University; and Christopher Slobogin, Milton R. Underwood Chair in Law at Vanderbilt School of Law.

This event was held on May 10, 2017, and served to launch the Constitution Center’s exciting new white paper series on privacy and the Constitution in the digital age — A Twenty-First Century Framework for Digital Privacy — featuring five white papers by some of the leading scholars in the country. This initiative was made possible by the support of Microsoft.
