In Vol. 7:2, the contributing authors to the Symposium Issue examine concerns relating to big data collections: the collection of tangible things (David S. Kris), NSA accountability (Raj De), the origins of big data (Sean Fahey), privacy and civil liberties concerns (Matthew Gordon), and the impact of the Snowden disclosures (Stephen I. Vladeck).
The issue also includes the transcript of a roundtable discussion that occurred at the symposium examining two hypothetical case studies and their Fourth Amendment implications (discussants: Mary Ellen Callahan, Elisabeth Cook, John Grant, Adam Isles, Greg Nojeim, Robert O’Harrow, Marc Rotenberg, and Stephen I. Vladeck).
In Vol. 7:1, contributing authors address a spectrum of challenging and germane national and international security issues, including the legitimacy of arming Syrian rebels, reform of the Classified Information Procedures Act, the tension between US counterterrorism policy and legal frameworks used to justify it, and how military attorneys should frame discussions of cyber warfare techniques.
Additionally, contributing to this journal's valuable dialog about teaching national security law, Col. Lisa L. Turner argues that the military should include the joint and perhaps inter-agency legal community in their legal education process.
