Information Privacy Law Seminar/Course

Course Description

This course surveys the laws of information and data privacy. We will examine constitutional, statutory, and common-law privacy rules in areas like: consumer data (especially online), educational records, healthcare, employment, and electronic communications. The course also highlights privacy constraints on law-enforcement and national security investigations, such as the Fourth Amendment. While focused on America, the course also considers some foreign and international privacy regimes (especially those of the European Union). After this course, students should be able to understand how various legal regimes impact privacy, how to spot privacy issues, and how governments and organizations can and should adapt in this evolving space.
