The Fourth Amendment: Comprehensive Search & Seizure training for Trial Judges Conference: This four day course provides a framework to analyze search and seizure issues: What is a search? When does a seizure occur? What are the types of searches and seizures? What interests are protected by the Amendment? Who has standing to challenge the intrusion? When is a search or seizure justified? When do the police need a warrant? If the Fourth Amendment has been violated, does the exclusionary rule apply? It also offers insights on motion hearings practice, detailed examination of the principles related to consent searches, and sessions on warrant issuance and review of that decision, warrant execution issues, and searches without warrants. These latter searches include exigent circumstances, community caretaking, inventory searches, automobile searches, frisks, and searches incident to arrest. In every course there is at least one session offering some observations on an issue of particular current significance. Finally, it offers an overview of developing principles related to computers and digital evidence.
