Cosponsored with George Washington's Mount Vernon

Presented at the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington on the grounds of Mount Vernon, this program will transport you to the very root of American constitutional jurisprudence with a unique opportunity to examine the government’s surveillance power from the founding of our nation to today’s digital age.

Privacy rights and the need to protect those in the United States from hostile acts are now being brought to the forefront of contemporary jurisprudential thinking in ways our founders never could have imagined. The Courts have increasingly grappled with how to apply the Fourth Amendment: balancing constitutional rights to privacy versus public safety.

George Washington's Mount VernonThe Supreme Court’s 2018 decision in Carpenter v. United States established that the government violates the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution by accessing historical records containing the physical locations of cellphones without a search warrant. This is just the tip of the iceberg that will be explored during this year’s Institute.

Join our distinguished faculty drawn from across the nation in this one-of-a-kind pastoral, educational, and historical setting, as they address one of the most pressing constitutional issues facing our nation today.

A full schedule and faculty listing will be announced.

We will not be offering the after-hours tour this year, but we do welcome a guest for the reception at no additional charge. There is a registration option for this, so that we may keep track of numbers.

This Experience CLE is not eligible for discounts.
