Description:

Every single day, the newspaper contains stories – plural intended – about data privacy and security. Whether they concern the National Security Agency, Facebook, or a data breach at a small business, the handling of personal information has become a central concern of our time. In response, a complex law of data privacy has emerged, and now it is a fast growing area of legal practice. This course will equip students to counsel clients about an array of federal, state, and international legal requirements – while also analyzing them critically and thinking about the societal challenges posed by new information technology. Assessment will include group projects and a take-home final.

Welcome to the course!

 

Here are the assignments for our initial three class meetings. As you see, we begin with constitutional law, though we will move on to other areas rapidly.

 

Before the first class, you must register for the TWEN site and download Chapter 1 from the “Readings” tab on the left. These pages are all from that chapter.

 

I will post a full Syllabus on TWEN before the first day of class.
