Professor Joh Publishes Essay on Policing and DNA Databases

Professor Elizabeth Joh has published an essay in Genomics Law Report on the ramifications of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Maryland v. King.  The case "affirms that DNA databanking in the criminal justice system is here to stay," but raises "troubling concerns about policing and genetic privacy," Joh writes.

Professor Joh's scholarship focuses on criminal procedure and policing, with a special emphasis on DNA evidence, undercover policing, and new surveillance technologies.
