A senior counsel at one of the most important advocacy groups for online privacy rights will be the next speaker in the Marquette Democracy Project series on Wednesday, March 21, at 4 p.m. at AMU 227.
Alan Butler of the Electronic Privacy Information Center will discuss “Digital Privacy and the Constitution: How Civil Liberties and New Technologies Intersect in the Supreme Court.”
Butler submitted an amicus brief cited in Riley v. California, one of the most important recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings on mobile phone privacy, and manages EPIC’s litigation, filing briefs in emerging privacy and civil liberties cases.
The Center for Transnational Justice is the main sponsor of the event, which is co-sponsored by the Marquette Law School and the Marquette Center for Cyber Security Awareness and Cyber Defense.
The Marquette Democracy Project brings social-movement theories to life by engaging today’s activists to discuss their stories, personal experiences and challenges they face.
