ABA Citizen Amicus Project for Law Students

I'm writing from the American Bar Association Criminal Justice Legal Educators Colloquium, where I've helped to organize a track of programming co-sponsored by the Association of American Law Schools Criminal Justice Section.  One of my fellow organizers, Prof. Andrew Ferguson of UDC, has put together an ABA initiative that may be of interest to your law students, particularly if you teach Fourth Amendment.  In conjunction with the ABA, Andrew has created a "Citizen Amicus Project" focused on the warrantless GPS-tracking case at the Supreme Court this term, United States v. Jones.  The Citizen Amicus Project is a web-based initiative through which law students can weigh in regarding whether a "reasonable expectation of privacy" exists in a warrantless GPS tracking scenario.  I understand that prizes will be awarded for the best student entries.  Why should law professors have all the (blogging) fun?  Enjoy!
