EU Data Protection and the GDPR Casebook

I’m pleased to announce that Paul Schwartz and I have launched a new casebook, EU Data Protection and the GDPR.

Developed from the casebook Information Privacy Law, this paperback contains key cases and materials focusing on privacy issues related to the GDPR and data protection in the European Union. Topics covered include the GDPR, Schrems cases, the right to be forgotten, and international data transfers. The book also contains key excerpts from the GDPR.

This book is designed for use in courses and seminars on comparative and international law, EU law, privacy law, information law, and consumer protection law.

Topics covered include:

  • GDPR
  • Schrems I and Schrems II cases
  • The right to be forgotten
  • International data transfers, including an account of the rise and fall of the Privacy Shield
  • European Court of Human Rights cases
  • European Court of Justice cases
  • Comparative analysis of EU and US privacy law

More details about the book are at our casebook website.
