Prof. Julian Ku Testifies on Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Before Privacy Board

A conference room.

On March 19, 2014, Professor Julian Ku of the Maurice A. Deane School of Law testified at an oversight hearing of the Private Civil Liberties Oversight Board, also known as PCLOB. The subject of the hearing, which was held in Washington, D.C., and broadcast on C-SPAN2, was “The Surveillance Program Operated Pursuant to Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.”

Professor Ku submitted remarks on constitutional aspects of the collection of foreign intelligence as a member of a panel of academics and advocates who discussed legal issues, including statutory and constitutional issues, relevant to the 702 program.

PCLOB, an independent, bipartisan agency within the executive branch, is charged with reviewing U.S. intelligence laws and practices.
