The 4th Annual
Privacy Law Scholars Conference
June 2-3, 2011

Hosted by the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology
at the Claremont Resort and Hotel, Berkeley, CA

 

 

Berkeley Law School and The George Washington University Law School will be holding the fourth annual Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC) on June 2-3, 2011. 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. Click below for the websites of:

1st Annual PLSC of 2008, held at GW Law School on June 12-13, 2008.

2nd Annual PLSC of 2009, held at Berkeley Law School on June 4-5, 2009.

3rd Annual PLSC of 2010, held at GW Law School on June 3-4, 2010.

Hosts: The GW Law School and the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology.

Organizers: Daniel J. Solove and Chris Hoofnagle

Getting to PLSC:

Oakland Airport (OAK) is closer to the Claremont Hotel, although you may have better luck getting direct flights by arriving at SFO.

The least expensive way to get from either airport to the Claremoent Hotel is to take the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART).  From the Oakland airport you board the AirBART, which will take you to the Coliseum/Oakland Airport BART Station for $3.  At SFO, the BART station is near the international terminal.  Take the BART to the Rockridge Station.  From the Rockridge Station on BART, it is 1.3 miles to The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa. Start out going north on College Avenue toward Keith Avenue. Turn right onto Claremont Avenue and right again onto Tunnel Road. 41 Tunnel Road is on the left.

Otherwise, just take a taxi.  They are available at the Rockridge Station.

The organizers of this conference thank the following sponsors their generous support:
