Information privacy law and policy has become a hotly debated topic. Businesses, government agencies, and individuals all need legal 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 U.S. and European privacy law, its evolution in the 20th century and beyond, and the challenges of regulating information in the modern era where institutions and "data subjects" collect, share, and reveal information constantly. In the United States, this area of law is built up of a patchwork that draws on statutory law, the common law, constitutional law, and federal and state law sources.
