Does the domestic use of drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) by law enforcement threaten privacy?  I’ll be discussing that topic at 1pm on Thursday September 13, 2012 at the University of San Diego, School of Law.

From the flier:


- The Federal Aviation Administration has predicted that within 20 years, 30,000 commercial and government drones could be flying in U.S. skies.

- Some drones called “nano drones” can be as small as an insect.

- Drones can be equipped with surveillance technologies to identify and track people.

- There are multiple bills currently being proposed in the House to limit the use of drones.

- The Federalist Society will be offering FREE FOOD at this one-of-a-kind, timely discussion.
