This seminar will address current topics of privacy law and policy. The class will begin with about three weeks of background reading on privacy law and selected current issues, such as national security wiretaps, medical privacy in a world of electronic health records, or the future of Internet privacy. Students will then work on papers in pairs, with opposing viewpoints on the draft papers, e.g., the FBI vs. the ACLU on national security wiretaps. Class sessions will feature the draft papers and critical discussion of how to resolve current privacy issues.
