Mapp v. Ohio: Guarding Against Unreasonable Searches and Seizures
Legal Landmarks: Supreme Court Decisions that Changed America
This 1961 case was a key element in the Warren Court's re-evaluation of almost every aspect of the criminal justice system. Carolyn N. Long examines how a conviction for pornography possession ended up rewriting law enforcement's rules regarding "unreasonable searches and seizures." KU Law Professor Melanie Wilson will introduce Ms. Long. The University of Kansas School of Law is a co-sponsor of this lecture series.
