Ten years ago, a handful of practitioners could be called "privacy lawyers," but now many lawyers throughout the world practice information privacy law. 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 upon seclusion or secrecy. This course will explore the roots of US privacy law, its evolution in the 20th century and development in the 21st century, and the challenges of regulating information in the modern era. It will examine tort law, the regulation of law enforcement access to information, the regulation of commercial data use, and international privacy law.
