"Testing the Limits of Executive Power: A Moot Court on The 4th Amendment and War Powers"

Posted on September 16, 2013

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?

Please join Honorable Stephen Ostrach and Professors Adam Irish and Jenna Lukasik-Wechsler for a "moot court" session, and discussion in honor of Constitution Day 2013.
