Student Committee Workshop: Privacy and the Fourth Amendment: Basics of Criminal Procedure Analysis for Government Searches and Seizures (Sponsored by the AP-LS Student Committee) This workshop will provide an introductory review of the Supreme Court’s Fourth Amendment jurisprudence and related issues of Constitutional Law and criminal procedure. The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution protects the right of the people to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures by Government actors. The Fourth Amendment has historically served an important and fundamental function in protecting individual liberties in American society. This workshop will explore the legal principles and judicial assumptions about human behavior and privacy underlying the interpretations of the scope of the Amendment’s protections by the Court. Further, we will examine the Fourth Amendment in terms of its history, its influence in the modern criminal trial, and engage in an interactive discussion about how contemporary social norms and modern technology might factor into the Courts analysis of similar issues in the intersection of Criminal Procedure and Constitutional law in the future. Time: 10:30–11:30 a.m. Location: The Venetian - Mezzanine Level
