Edward Snowden's recent disclosures about the NSA's surveillance activities have raised important national security and civil liberty questions: How effective is the NSA's surveillance? What are its costs and benefits? Should individuals care if the government stores metadata even if they think they have nothing to hide? What role should courts play in potentially constraining the NSA's surveillance activities? Who might have standing to raise constiutional challenges to the NSA's activities? Come hear a fantastic panel of national security, cybersecurity, and privacy law experts discuss these important questions about the future of our democracy.

Seating is limited for this event. RSVP to floersheimercenter@gmail.com.
