This course explores the roots of US privacy law and litigation, the evolution of the focus of litigation since the 1970s, and the current challenges of companies and the courts in the modern era where new privacy laws are being discussed, proposed, and enacted at the state and federal level, as well as around the globe. We will explore a range of approaches to litigation and enforcement actions in response to companies’ handling of personal information and data breaches, evaluating their main themes, effectiveness, consistency, and practicability.
