The 2nd Annual
Privacy Law Scholars Conference
June 4-5, 2009

Hosted by the Berkeley Law School
at the Claremont Resort & Spa
Berkeley, CA

 

 

Berkeley Law School and The George Washington University Law School will be holding the second annual Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC) on June 4-5, 2009. The PLSC aims to assemble a wide array of privacy law scholars and practitioners from around the world to discuss current issues and foster greater connections between academia and practice. It will bring together privacy law scholars, privacy scholars from other disciplines (economics, philosophy, political science, computer science), and practitioners (industry, legal, advocacy, and government). Our goal is to enhance ties within the privacy law community and to facilitate dialogue between the different parts of that community (academy, government, industry, and public interest).

The PLSC is an annual event, alternating between Berkeley and GW Law Schools.
