Course Description

Length: 53min    Published: 12/9/2014    
Recent revelations made by Edward Snowden revealed that the American Government was collecting mass amounts of data on its citizens without warrant or any specific suspicion of criminal activity. Many scholars believe that this is an abuse of rights granted by the constitution, while the debate continues on whether Snowden engaged in criminal activity or was simply a "Whistleblower" under federal law. Join First Amendment lawyer Larry Walters as he explores this controversial topic. Among other subjects, Mr. Walters will cover the NSA's relevant policies and activities, the many chilling effects thought to result from such activities, and the legislation proposals meant to limit the NSA.
