LAW704  A  PRIVACY

Course Description
US Privacy law is in a period of ferment and change. States have led the way, first in tort law, and now with 49 states now having data breach laws, to the Illinois’s regulation of biometrics, to the new controversial California privacy laws. Huge gaps remain, however, especially when compared to the European Union’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR has extraterritorial provisions, so it reaches the conduct of US firms that do business in Europe. Privacy law also arises in the context of the Fourth Amendment, federal statutory and regulatory regimes such as FTC enforcement, medical privacy, and the Patriot Act. Together these developments not only make up a large new body of law, they create a large demand for lawyers in multiple capacities: advising, litigating, lobbying, and structuring compliance. We will survey this increasingly complex and wide-ranging subject.
