Smile, You're on Camera- The Legal Implications of Technology Use for Law Enforcement

October 21, 2015 • 12:30 PM • Law School 3043

Recently, the use of police force has become a very relevant issue throughout the United States. Technology often comes into play as dash cams, body cams, and bystander videos are able to capture some of the alleged misconduct. What are the legal implications of these videos? Are they admissible as evidence in the court room? How is technology changing the way the law handles these types of cases? Please join the Duke Forum for Law and Social Change and the American Constitution Society for a panel discussion about the use of technology and its implications for law enforcement officers. Panelists include Professor Griffin, Professor Miller, Christopher Brook, ACLU of North Carolina's Legal Director, and Scott Holmes, a Criminal Defense Attorney. Sponsored by DFLSC. Lunch will be provided. For more information, please contact Nicole Gage at
