Join Chicago-Kent faculty, students, and alumni for the 2019 Palmer Prize Lecture. In this lecture, Timothy Edgar, winner of the 2018 Palmer Civil Liberties Prize, will discuss the ideas in his book Beyond Snowden: Privacy, Mass Surveillance, and the Struggle to Reform the NSA (Brookings Institution Press 2017). A senior fellow at Brown University's Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs, Edgar explains both why and how we can protect our privacy without sacrificing vital intelligence capabilities.

The annual $10,000 Roy C. Palmer Civil Liberties Prize was established in 2007 by Roy C.
