For the second event of its 2005-06 Convocation Lecture series, “Legal Realities Behind Media Headlines,” and as part of its new Angela S. Cooney Distinguished Lecture Series, the Syracuse University College of Law will host Jeffrey Rosen, professor of law at George Washington University, Oct. 19 at 4 p.m., in Grant Auditorium. As an expert in matters concerning privacy and security in an age of terrorism and national security, Rosen will address the issues surrounding legal reporting in the new media age. Public parking for this event is in the Irving Garage.
Rosen teaches constitutional law, criminal procedure and the law of privacy. He is also the legal affairs editor of The New Republic and a frequent contributing writer to The New York Times Magazine. His latest book, “The Naked Crowd: Reclaiming Security and Freedom in an Anxious Age” (2004) was called by the Harvard Law Review a “thoughtful and engaging read … [that] provides much-needed depth to the debate over balancing privacy and security in an age of terrorism.” His first book, “The Unwanted Gaze: The Destruction of Privacy in America” (2001), was called by The New York Times “the definitive text on privacy perils in the digital age.”
Rosen will also be a featured presenter at “Bench Press: The Collision Of Media, Politics, Public Pressure, And An Independent Judiciary,” which is a symposium sponsored by SU’s College of Law, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Oct. 17 in Washington D.C.
He is a graduate of Harvard College, summa cum laude; Oxford University, where he was a Marshall Scholar; and Yale Law. He is a frequent contributor to National Public Radio.
