The world's top privacy lawyers and scholars will discuss the future of privacy in an exclusive online event August 27, with opening remarks from former Irish President Mary McAleese and a keynote presentation by Irish Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon.
“The Future of Privacy, from Ireland to America,” co-hosted by Twitter and Notre Dame Law School's Program on Intellectual Property & Technology Law, will consider the lessons of European data protection law, and particularly its implementation in Ireland, for privacy and data protection regulation in the rest of the world.
“No country in the world has been more important to the development of privacy and data protection law than Ireland, particularly since implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation,” said Mark McKenna, John P. Murphy Foundation Professor of Law and director of the Program on Intellectual Property & Technology Law. “Given Notre Dame’s strong connection with Ireland and our program’s deep interest in privacy, we are thrilled to be able to bring together this remarkable group of experts to take stock of the Irish and European experience and evaluate the many new regulations competing for primacy in this area. And we’re grateful for Twitter’s partnership in pulling this together.”
