Fall 2021 • Section 21 • CRN 3066

Course Description

Information law deals with the flow of information - when do you restrict information and when do you let it flow? During this course students will examine information privacy legal principles related to electronic surveillance, the media, anonymity, databases, genetic testing and neuroimaging, terrorism and national security, public and private sector information and home, school and work. Students will be expected to prepare for each class by reading the required legal readings and by accessing Internet web sites for current policy information. During class, students will discuss their prepared material and become involved in resolving problems that apply the out-of-class preparation. Additionally, students will make an in-class presentation on one topic. In-class work will contribute information to enhance the students' legal understandings.
