NACDL's 2016 Fall Meeting & Seminar,"Suppress It! Litigating 4th Amendment Rights" will be held at the Westin DC City Center hotel in Washington, DC, October 26-29, 2016.
Whether by drone, by phone, sophisticated spyware or canine sniffs, license plate readers or biometric data - the government is rapidly expanding its reach in gathering information and evidence against persons suspected of crimes, and in doing so, are increasingly pushing and exceeding the limits of our 4th Amendment rights.
Today’s criminal defense bar is facing ever-increasing challenges when protecting their clients from government overreach. This program will place you on the cutting-edge of Fourth Amendment jurisprudence, arming you with the tools necessary to combat these excessive intrusions, and equipping you with effective strategies to suppress them.
A national faculty of experts and leading litigators will address the latest challenges to cell tower data, computer file sharing, drones, and biometric data—while providing new ways to attack claims of consent to search in street encounters, automobile stops, and racial profiling. They will also address the ways in which these constitutional issues uniquely impact juveniles and the ethical implications of waivers in plea negotiations.
Join your NACDL colleagues in our nation’s capital for this timely and essential program, and May the Fourth Be With You!
