Following the concerns and controversy of recent cases such as United States v. Jones and ACLU v. Alvarez, the 22nd annual NIU Law Review symposium will delve into Illinois’ unique role in the surveillance and eavesdropping sphere and discuss the inherent struggles among modern technology, privacy and the law.

Topics on the agenda include constitutional concerns of the Illinois Eavesdropping Act and the nation’s various eavesdropping/wiretapping statutes, unmanned drone usage in Illinois and the impact of United States v. Jones in Illinois.

The symposium begins at 8:30 a.m. Friday, April 19, in the Holmes Student Center. Registration is available online.
