On Monday, October 29, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Clapper v. Amnesty International, which poses the question whether a group of human rights organizations, lawyers, activists and journalists have standing to challenge the constitutionality of the 2008 legislation passed by Congress to amend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

In this podcast, Harvard journalist Alan Rozenshtein spoke with Jameel Jaffer of the ACLU, who argued the case for the respondents, and WilmerHale Partner Benjamin Powell, General Counsel to the first three Directors of National Intelligence, about the case and the law.
