Book - Privacy Law Fundamentals - Solove Schwartz 02a

I am pleased to announce that Professor Paul Schwartz and I have just published a new 6th edition of our book, PRIVACY LAW FUNDAMENTALS.  Now in a new 6th edition for 2022, PRIVACY LAW FUNDAMENTALS is a distilled guide to the essential elements of U.S. data privacy law. In an easily-digestible format, the book covers core concepts, key laws, and leading cases.

The book summarizes the essential provisions of all of the major privacy statutes and regulations, including COPPA, ECPA, FCRA, FERPA, FISA, FTC Act, GLBA, HIPAA, TCPA, Privacy Act, VPPA, and more.

The book includes summaries of foreign laws such as the EU’s GDPR, China’s PIPL, Canada’s PIPEDA, Brazil’s LGPD, and more.

In addition, PRIVACY LAW FUNDAMENTALS summarizes key state privacy laws and provides an overview of FTC and HHS enforcement actions. We provide numerous charts and tables summarizing the privacy statutes (i.e. statutes with private rights of action, preemption, and statutory damages, among other things).

Students interested in the book can receive a special 20% discount by using code PLF4STUDENT
