Course Description:

*Also 4 Evening Bridge the Gap Session

Listening to your phone calls without a judge's warrant is illegal if you're a U.S. citizen. But do the police need a warrant? Can employers monitor and record their employees' phone conversations?

If you are in a position where others might benefit from listening to your conversations, you may be a target of electronic eavesdropping or wiretapping. Is it a federal crime to wiretap without court approval, unless one of the parties has given their prior consent? Is a warrant needed to get emails? Can law enforcement obtain emails with only a subpoena.

The program will explore these and other important privacy issues in a comprehensive look at privacy and the law for individuals within the U.S. An examination of the wide landscape of emerging privacy issues will be provided, and hopefully simplified, with an approach which will answer most privacy queries and an exploration of the specific law applicable to each potential intrusion on one’s privacy.

·Where the intruder could be the government, any corporate enterprise which tracks you, your employer, or the public in general.

·Where the medium could be your phone (voice or text), your email, your cloud storage or your web browser.

·Where the law would be the current legislation or case law which applies in each intruder/medium combination

A discussion oftrends and the future of privacy from the vantage point of new and emerging technology as well as ethical issues for practitioners will be provided.
