Liberty and Privacy in the Roberts Court

Professor Laurence A. Benner

Through an examination of recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions touching on constitutional guarantees that secure our liberty and privacy against unjustified governmental intrusions, this presentation will explore the shrinking scope of Fourth Amendment protection. Attention will also focus on how the Court has restricted enforcement of Fourth Amendment protections against overzealous police practices by limiting the exclusionary rule and civil remedies.

Instructor: A graduate of the University of Chicago Law School, Professor Emeritus Laurence A. Benner has taught criminal procedure and constitutional law for more than three decades and was Managing Director of Criminal Justice Programs at California Western School of Law. His scholarship and empirical research have been cited in the U.S. Supreme Court as well as leading criminal-justice textbooks and treatises on criminal procedure.
