12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Novel Justice is a book event series sponsored by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice. We invite authors to discuss recently published criminal justice books and engage in Q&A with faculty and students. Christopher Slobogin is a Milton Underwood Professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School and the director of Vanderbilt Law School's Criminal Justice Program. His book, Virtual Searches: Regulating the Covert World of Technological Policing, develops a useful typology for sorting through the bewildering array of old, new, and soon-to-arrive policing techniques. It then lays out a framework for regulating their use that expands the Fourth Amendment's privacy protections without blindly imposing its warrant requirement, and that prioritizes democratic over judicial policymaking. Join us for a conversation and Q&A with Slobogin about his work. Professor Brandon Garrett, Director of the Wilson Center, will moderate. Lunch will be provided. Sponsored by the Wilson Center for Science and Justice. For more information, please contact Stella Kreilkamp at
