Elon Law Review symposium explores technology, cybersecurity & the Fourth Amendment

The Elon Law Review's March 4 symposium enabled law scholars and international business and nonprofit leaders to probe the implications of corporate and government use of consumer and citizen data on privacy laws, as well as how the Fourth Amendment functions in the twenty first century and how it should function in the future.

Carolina Rossini, vice president for international policy, Public Knowledge, presents at the Elon Law Review's March 4, 2016 symposium on technology, cybersecurity and the Fourth Amendment 
Diane Pappayliou L’16, editor in chief of the Elon Law Review, described this year’s symposium’s topic. 

“This year’s symposium on technology and the Fourth Amendment related to current issues, like the Apple-FBI case, which served as excellent vehicles for discussion in the panels and keynote speeches,” Pappayliou said. “The symposium speakers were international experts on cybersecurity. It was exciting to listen to the exchanges stemming from questions asked by the audience of law students and practicing attorneys.”
