Our legal system seems to be struggling with how to interpret the Constitution when it comes to today’s technology -- from threats made on social media to whether police need a warrant to search a smartphone. We’ll look at the debate over how to apply principles established more than two centuries ago to our high-tech society. 

GUESTS:

  • John Greabe – Professor of Law at UNH Law, who specializes in Constitutional law. 
  • Jennifer Sargent  –  Associate professor of writing at Dartmouth College; former law professor, district-court judge, and public defender.
