Addison C. Harris Lecture: Prof. Anupam Chander, "Beyond Privacy vs. Trade"
Noon - 1 p.m. in the DeLaney Moot Court Room and on Zoom
Are trade and privacy inherently in conflict? Does trade undermine privacy? Efforts across the world increasingly seek to keep personal data from flowing out of the country, largely based on the worry that data will be unsafe if it leaves one’s shores.
In this lecture, Prof. Chander, the Scott K. Ginsburg Professor of Law and Technology at Georgetown University, will argue that trade and privacy are not necessarily in conflict, and in fact can be mutually constitutive. He will go even further to argue that international privacy law was largely constructed in the service of international trade.
One hour of Indiana CLE is approved.
