The Foundation for Criminal Justice preserves and promotes the core values of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the American criminal justice system. The award supports the NACDL's Fourth Amendment Center as it seeks to reinforce and restore the Fourth Amendment protections of the U.S. Constitution in the digital age. Work is focused in three core areas: 1) providing advanced education on emerging issues at the intersection of advancing technology, privacy, and the constitutional rights of the accused in criminal cases; 2) establishing a practical and dynamic toolkit of resources to help lawyers identify opportunities to challenge government surveillance tools and techniques as they arise in criminal cases; and, 3) providing tactical litigation support to assist the criminal defense bar in cases that present an opportunity to challenge the use of new technologies that invade traditional realms of privacy, and provide support for defense lawyers and impact litigators.
