ISP Ideas Lunch - Kiel Brennan-Marquez

Thursday, September 29, 2016 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm

Kiel Brennan-Marquez is a visiting fellow at the Information Society Project. His research focuses on the relationship between technological evolution and jurisprudence. His previous work explored this question in the context of the Fifth Amendment; this year, he will turn his sights to the Fourth Amendment. He is especially interested in the way lawyers and judges respond to technologies they do not fully understand, and in how technological change inspires utopian and dystopian forms of argument. He holds degrees from Yale Law School and Pomona College.
