Join us for our monthly downtown lecture series for alumni, local practitioners, and the public, featuring Case Western Reserve University School of Law professors. From September 2012 through June 2013, the School of Law will host 10 morning lectures at The City Club of Cleveland. Attend as many as you like, and join us for coffee and breakfast beforehand.

Professor Katz will discuss recent Fourth Amendment developments, and some that may be down the road. He will focus on United States v. Jones where five members of the Supreme Court indicated a need to rethink the Katz privacy formula which has been used for 40 years to limit Fourth Amendment rights. Secondly, Professor Katz will discuss the disappearing Fourth Amendment protections for motorists on the streets and highways of America.
