CITIZENFOUR in cinemas !
Director: Laura Poitras
Starring: Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and Jacob Appelbaum
CITIZENFOUR is a real time thriller, giving audiences an exclusive front-row seat to the moment Edward Snowden changed history with his revelations of widespread government surveillance around the world.
In June 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald met with Snowden confidentially in Hong Kong, where he handed over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). As the story breaks, they are forced to manage the raging media storm around them, and find their personal security and that of their loved ones under threat.
CITIZENFOUR not only shows you the dangers of governmental surveillance—it makes you feel them.

This competition is particularly popular as it involves no specific legal knowledge. Competitors act as solicitors with the task of conducting an initial interview with a new client regarding a mystery legal problem. The competitors' job is to tease out all the material facts from the client regarding their 'legal dilemma'. Competitors are awarded a score for their performance based on the number of facts ascertained, their empathy with the client and their level of professionalism.
All RMIT JD students are invited to compete.
Date: Thursday 5 February
