BJCL Cybercrime Symposium: Online Crime Surveillance
February 12, 2019 @ 12:50 pm - 2:00 pm
The Berkeley Journal of Criminal Law (BJCL) is hosting its spring 2019 symposium. This year’s symposium centers issues in cybercrime and consists of three lunch talks by Bay Area practitioners whose work takes place at the intersection of criminal law and digital technologies.
Our first lunch talk, scheduled for February 12, 2019, addresses online crime surveillance. The BJCL is honored to have San Francisco public defender Scott Grant speak on how he got involved in cybercrime work as a public defender, how the police are tracking files that are illegally shared on the Internet more generally and what that looks like in the context of child pornography specifically, what powers this gives to prosecutors and what problems this poses for defense attorneys and criminal defendants, and what litigation and other forms of advocacy have arisen in response.
