Opportunity to Study Privacy Law in Amsterdam this Summer

Opportunity to Study Privacy Law in Amsterdam this Summer

Guest blogger: Dennis Hirsch

The University of Amsterdam’s Institute for Information Law announces its second annual Summer Course on Privacy Law and Policy which will meet from July 7-11, 2014. The course will focus on privacy law and policy related to the Internet, electronic communications and online and social media. It will feature a faculty of leading experts from the EU and the US who will explore the recent developments in this rapidly changing field and explain how businesses, governments and others can achieve their goals within it.  Jacob Kohnstamm, chairman of the Dutch Data Protection Authority, will provide a keynote address.

The course, which will meet in a historic building along one of Amsterdam’s most beautiful canals, will employ a seminar format designed to provide not only practical information about the latest developments but also deeper, more strategic insights into where the field is headed in the future. It is particularly suited to private sector lawyers, government officials, NGO staff, academics, PhD students and others who work in the areas of privacy and data protection law. Enrollment is limited to 25 participants.  Those who wish to secure a place are encouraged to apply soon.  Additional information—including a list of faculty, a detailed course programme and a link for online registration—is available at http://www.ivir.nl/courses/plp/plp.html.  For questions, contact the course organizers Dr. Kristina Irion (informationlaw@uva.nl) or Professor Dennis Hirsch (dhirsch@law.capital.edu).
