Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Privacy : Whether your career objective is in the private or public sector, you should understand something about the current state of privacy law. Businesses and government alike have come to expect greater and faster access to information, and these needs have to be balanced against our reasonable expectations of safety from unnecessary or harmful intrusions. This course has wide application, since privacy concerns are also triggered in a variety of special practice areas, such as health, education and employment. Civil rights lawyers, too, should understand the way current law balances the values of free speech and individual privacy.

General course Description:

Today almost all modern businesses need advice about information privacy law. While the roots of privacy law in the US started with a right to be let alone, modern business models, the needs of the administrative state, law enforcement priorities, and our own behavior complicate approaches based solely upon seclusion or secrecy. This course will explore the roots of US privacy law, its evolution in the 20th century, and the challenges of regulating information in the modern era where institutions and individuals need and reveal information constantly, but also seek basic dignity and safety from harm. Privacy law is comprised of torts, contracts, constitutional law, statutory law, soft law norms, and emerging technologies. We will discuss all of these things, as well as incorporate developments in the news. Elements used in grading: Class Participation and Final Exam.
