Orin S. Kerr discusses his article, "The Next Generation Privacy Act," which has been accepted for publication in the University of Pennsylvania Law Review. He argues that Congress should repeal the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986 (18 USC 2510), which regulates government access to Internet records replacing it with a new statute that reflects current technologies and addresses privacy threats. Speaker Biography: Professor Kerr was appointed in May 2012 as Scholar-In-Residence for the program. He is a tenured professor of law at George Washington University, where he teaches criminal law, criminal procedure and computer-crime law. The focus of his academic research has been on how new technologies change criminal law and criminal investigations. Professor Kerr's work in this area has been cited in more than 70 judicial decisions, including the U.S. Supreme Court's January 2012 decision in United States v. Jones, on the constitutionality of the warrantless use of GPS monitoring. Kerr's articles have been published in many leading law reviews, including the Harvard Law Review and the Yale Law Journal.
