IAPP Web Conference Recording:
Introduction to U.S. Privacy Law
Original Broadcast Date: March 3, 2017
Free for IAPP members and nonmembers
As information privacy attorneys, we frequently hear certain questions from law students and lawyers with an interest in joining our field: What are the sources of privacy law? What does a privacy lawyer do? How do I start? Should I study administrative law? What about international law? And, most importantly, how do I get a job in privacy?
Lawyers who specialize in information privacy enjoy a surprisingly diverse set of career paths. Though many work in law firms, others deploy their expertise within companies, nonprofits, consulting agencies, advocacy groups, and all levels of government. Privacy lawyers ensure compliance with laws and regulations while also enforcing best practices based on broad cultural norms. They tackle policy questions that affect the day-to-day lives of anyone who uses an internet-connected device. And, increasingly, their work has a direct impact on an enormous swathe of the global economy.
Designed for those just starting out in the field of privacy law, this web conference will provide a crash course in the legal foundations of privacy in the U.S. along with practical examples from the daily lives of privacy attorneys. This hour-long program will include time for questions and answers and a useful handout with resources for getting started in the privacy profession.
