    02.24.16 WNYC Features Debate on Apple/FBI Case in Dean Nick Allard’s Privacy Law Class
    Courtney Hargrove

    WNYC paid a visit recently to the Law School’s Privacy Law in a Digital Age class taught by Dean Nick Allard to cover a lively and timely presentation by four students who argued on behalf of Apple, the FBI, the victims of Syed Farook in the San Bernardino mass shooting in December, and a privacy-rights group. The other 38 students in the class served as the judges and voted 20-18 to reverse a federal magistrate’s order that Apple help the FBI break into Farook’s iPhone.

    Allard told the class: “Sometimes tough cases make bad law. And so if you're going to allow the intrusion in this case, where do you draw the line?”

    Listen to the story.
