Join the Federalist Society for a discussion of digital surveillance, including Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which authorizes the U.S. government to acquire foreign intelligence and target non-U.S. persons reasonably believed to be located outside the United States. To conduct this surveillance, the government can compel assistance from internet service providers, telephone companies, and other companies, including Google, Facebook and Skype. How should the government deal with information that is incidentally collected from U.S. persons? What safeguards are there, and should there be, to comply with the Fourth Amendment? Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Federalist Society. For more information, please contact Sarah Koelling at
