(2 cr.) As the Internet continues to expand throughout society and in our daily lives, cybersecurity, privacy, and anonymity legal issues are becoming increasingly important. Students in this course will study both U.S. and European data protection and privacy regimes, with an emphasis on U.S. law. Students will explore the legal frameworks of U.S. privacy laws as they apply to specific industries and types of information holders and users, analyzing relevant statutes, civil litigation, and FTC enforcement actions as well as as actual contract language (i.e., online privacy policies and data protection language). Students will engage with the most current cases and will work on practical legal issues relevant to corporate clients. The objective of this course is for students to develop a broad foundation and skill set in this rapidly evovling area of law.
