LAW - 743D Constitutional Privacy

2 unit(s)
A constitutional right of privacy has been found in a variety of settings including the right to family planning, the right of abortion, the right to be free of unreasonable searches, the right to marry, the right to keep certain information private, the right to the privacy of one’s own home, the right to privately associate. Yet, there is no direct pronouncement of a right of privacy in the constitution. Through this course, we will examine the variety of constitutional privacy rights and how and where the Supreme Court found them. We will also seek to define what we mean by “privacy,” constitutional and otherwise. Finally, we will examine the right of privacy contained on the California constitution and see how, if at all, it differs from its U.S. constitutional counterpart.
