Privacy Law Fundamentals

I’m pleased to announce that a new 4th edition of my short guide, PRIVACY LAW FUNDAMENTALS  (IAPP 2017)  (co-authored with Professor Paul Schwartz) is now out in print.  This edition incorporates extensive developments in privacy law and includes an introductory chapter summarizing key new laws, cases and enforcement actions.

Privacy Law Fundamentals is designed with an accessible, portable format to deliver vital information in a concise (318 pages) and digestible manner. It includes key provisions of privacy statutes; leading cases; tables summarizing the statutes (private rights of action, preemption, liquidated damages, etc.); summaries of key state privacy laws; and an overview of FTC, FCC, and HHS enforcement actions.

“This is the essential primer for all privacy practitioners.” — David A. Hoffman, Intel Corp.

“In our fast-paced practice, there’s nothing better than a compact and accessible work that is curated by two of the great thinkers of the field.  It is a gem.” — Kurt Wimmer, Covington & Burling LLP

“Two giants of privacy scholarship succeed in distilling their legal expertise into an essential guide for a broad range of the privacy community.” — Jules Polonetsky, Future of Privacy Forum

“This book is my go-to reference for when I need quick, accurate information on privacy laws across sectors and jurisdictions.” — Nuala O’Connor, Center for Democracy and Technology

You can get a copy at IAPP’s bookstore or at Amazon.  For general information about this book as well as all my textbooks and useful resources, visit our Information Privacy Law textbook website.

why law schools should teach privacy
