Privacy Law Fundamentals – New 2019 Edition

Privacy Law Fundamentals 2019 03

I am pleased to announce the publication of the new edition of PRIVACY LAW FUNDAMENTALS, my short guide to privacy law with Prof Paul Schwartz.  The purpose of this compact treatise is to distill the vast terrain of privacy law to the essential cases, regulations, statutes, and other notable developments.  We aim to provide what you need to know about privacy law in a concise volume that doesn’t weigh 500 pounds. We hope that this book will serve as a privacy law reference that you can readily keep at hand.

You can obtain a copy of the book at the IAPP bookstore.  A lot has happened in privacy law since the last edition because every day there’s something new in this field.  Here’s the table of contents.

Please visit my casebook website — Information Privacy Law — to find out more info about this book, as well as my casebooks with Paul Schwartz.
