What happened on September 11, 2001, changed America. The coordinated terror attacks on the homeland led the U.S. government to enact new laws and take additional steps to protect national security. But has the government gone too far? Join us at Eckstein Hall on Thursday, June 2, for a conference presented by Marquette University Law School, as we address key questions presented by a post-9/11 world. To what extent have national security interests appropriately required government surveillance or restrictions on individual liberty beyond the historical norm? How are national security tools being used locally? How has the law changed to address concerns about the bulk collection of metadata from Americans' phone calls? The conference will also consider issues implicated by the recent legal battle over the FBI's attempt to force Apple to unlock an iPhone used by a San Bernardino terrorist.
