BALTIMORE — Professor Kami Chavis Simmons will speak at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law’s Journal of Race, Religion, Gender, and Class annual Fall Symposium on Friday, Oct. 25.
The Fourth Amendment, which outlines the rights to security having to do with searches and seizures of person and property, has long been interpreted and discussed, according to the symposium’s website.
The Fall Symposium, “The Future of the Fourth Amendment,” will examine how recent interpretations of the Fourth Amendment will have an impact on a wide range of social issues. The discussions will explore the arguments presented in Maryland v. King, the potential for familial profiling with the collection of DNA at arrest, and how U.S. v. Jones may lead to trespass issues with an unexpected impact on lower income demographics.
Important topics covered at the symposium will be Constitutionality of DNA Collection, Juvenile DNA Collection, Familial Profiling and Limitations to the Right of Privacy.
Other speakers will include:
- Fabio Arcila, Jr., Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center
- Lee Kovarsky, University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law
- Kevin Lapp, Loyola Law School, Los Angeles
- Stephen Mercer, Chief Attorney of Forensics Division, Maryland Office of the Public Defender
