Technology has impacted modern criminal procedure in a way that our founders could not have imagined; and the legal implications to privacy grow concurrently as the use of such technology expands. We will be discussing the ramification to privacy and the effects on society as it relates to the use of:

  • facial recognition in the investigation phase;
  • algorithms in the sentencing phase; and
  • extensive criminal background searches post-conviction.

Keynote Speaker:  Alec Karakatsanis, Civil Rights Corps Founder & Executive Director
