About Fabio Arcila Jr.

My scholarship focuses upon Fourth Amendment search and seizure law. I am particularly interested in civil search jurisprudence and the implications that modern developments have on it, including the rise of the regulatory state and the increasing interest in preventative searches, such as for national security purposes.
