Photograph: Matthew Tokson.Professor Matthew Tokson is an associate professor at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law and a rising star in legal academia. In the last four years, Professor Tokson published articles in the University of Chicago Law Review, Northwestern University Law Review, and Boston College Law Review. Professor Tokson has written extensively on the intersection of privacy, technology, and the Fourth Amendment, and his research was recently cited by Justice Sotomayor in oral arguments in Carpenter v. United States.

After graduating from the University of Chicago Law School, Professor Tokson served as a law clerk to the Honorable Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the Honorable David H. Souter of the United States Supreme Court, and to the Honorable A. Raymond Randolph of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Before moving to the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, Professor Tokson was an Assistant Professor at Chase College of Law, a fellow at the University of Chicago, and a senior litigation associate with WilmerHale, in Washington, D.C.

Professor Tokson's lecture will examine the Supreme Court's decision in Carpenter v. United States, in which the Court held that a search warrant is required to obtain a suspect's historical cell-site location information, and will address which novel surveillance issues the Court is likely to confront next. He will further assess how the Fourth Amendment is likely to apply to the next wave of government surveillance technologies including drones, web tracking, smart home devices, and more.
