The Privacy Law Society is committed to exploring the social and legal issues raised by technology and privacy. Our goal is to embrace the field of Privacy Law to ensure that digital technologies serve and strengthen democratic values, institutions and processes.
Technology is changing the way in which personal information can become public, and the law is racing to catch up with these changes. The Privacy Law Society explores these changes, focusing on the fields of data security, internet privacy, health care confidentiality, computer science, the constitutional underpinnings of
privacy, and more.
The club’s focus is to provide an avenue for discourse that allows students to learn and think critically about these issues, and to prepare them for eventual legal careers in these areas. In addition to inspiring new interest in the Privacy Law field, the society acts as a valuable networking vehicle with attorneys through panel discussions and meetings.
