This course explores the controversial legal issues that have become apparent since 9/11.  The Patriot Act, strain between privacy interests and intelligence gathering, United States Supreme Court cases, and  Human Rights issues will be studied.  Using an historical approach and focusing on technological developments that make new forms of surveillance possible, it examines how constitutional issues are interpreted by the courts to determine constitutional rights and limits on government authority.
