Special "Moot Court" event set for September 19, 2013

Posted on September 16, 2013

Join us for "Testing the Limits of Executive Power: A Moot Court on The Fourth Amendment and War Powers" with discussion to follow.

  • Holman Room
  • Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts

What are the limits of Presidential power in combating the "war on terror"? Can the President order the indefinite detention of an American citizen?  How do our constitutional rights adapt to protect our increasingly dependent relationship with technology?  Can the government track our location via our cell phones without a warrant?

In honor of Constitution Day, we invite you to join us for a moot court simulation followed by a discussion.  The Honorable Stephen Ostrach, and Professors Adam Irish and Jenna Lukasik-Wechsler will serve as judges.
