Ten years ago, only a handful of practitioners could be called "privacy lawyers," but now many lawyers concentrate in 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 21st century, and the challenges of regulating information in the modern era where institutions and "data subjects" need and reveal information constantly, but also seek basic dignity and safety from harm. Privacy law consists of torts, contracts, constitutional law, statutory law, and soft law norms. It also involves global aspects, including the European Union's pathbreaking General Data Protection Regulation.

This course will meet in-person on campus on June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th, and 25th in room 105.
