BC Supreme Court cites TRU Law alum and professor – TRU Newsroom

TRU Inaugural Professional Lecture – Chris Hunt – TRU Newsroom

March 20, 2023 at 2:16 pm  Education, Kamloops, News

TRU and Kamloops community members are invited to learn how ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’ (REP) is determined when a person’s privacy is in question under ‘unreasonable search or seizure.’

On Tuesday, April 4, TRU Faculty of Law Professor Dr. Chris Hunt presents a lecture titled Normative Tensions in Constitutional Privacy Rights Adjudication at TRU’s Inaugural Professorial Lecture series.

Hunt, who was promoted to professor in April 2022, delves into the different approaches the court takes in assessing a claimant’s REP and how these differing approaches can create tensions related to the objectivity of privacy and the growing trend of government surveillance.

TRU’s Inaugural Professorial Lectures publicly celebrate a major milestone in the academic careers of the university’s newly appointed tripartite professors. These lectures provide an opportunity for the public to meet new professors and to gain an understanding of their scholarship, research and teaching. The series is organized by TRU’s Professorial Lecture Committee, with generous support from the Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic.

There is limited seating attendance at this event. Please RSVP by Wednesday, March 29.
