Same as LAW 279M, Topic: Privacy Law: Personal Data Under US and EU Law.

This course addresses the law of privacy and personal data protection under two dominant, but quite different, legal regimes. In this course, we will review privacy fundamentals – principles, risks, and harms - within the U.S. legal framework, including federal consumer, financial, and health privacy laws, and historical and emerging state laws. We will discuss and evaluate important aspects of the evolving U.S. legal framework and the EU GDPR, taking into account the unique challenges posed by the evolution of digital data technology, including data aggregation, analytics, biometrics, breach response, and artificial intelligence.
