B708 Information Privacy Law I

Description Privacy law and policy is one of the most important and rapidly expanding (and changing) fields in the world today. Increasingly most aspects of daily life involve the (often unwitting) collection, communication, and use of personal data. As personal data are generated and collected more widely, and are far more revealing, governments are challenged to determine the proper limits and regulatory structures to enforce those limits, while businesses and other data users must determine how to comply with those emerging rules, often in the context of new technologies and unclear norms. This course will introduce a wide range of information privacy issues in the United States and, to a lesser extent, in other countries, in both the public and private sectors. Our goal is both to provide a substantive overview of the many laws and regulations in this rapidly growing field and to develop an analytical framework for examining the costs and benefits of various forms of privacy protection.
