Professor Chin Comments on Privacy Law for Daily Journal

Professor Gabriel "Jack" Chin commented for the Daily Journal on a California bill that would provide defense attorneys and their investigators with the ability to secretly record conversations with witnesses in criminal cases. Currently, state privacy laws prohibit the recording of individuals without their knowledge or consent.

"The proposed law would create an exception to the prohibition so [recording] becomes legal again," said Chin.

Gabriel "Jack" Chin, who joined the King Hall faculty in 2011, is a prolific and much-cited criminal and immigration law scholar whose work has addressed many of the most pressing social issues of our time.
