Last Updated Date:   29 October 2021

4 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
The objective of this course is to introduce students to the law on privacy and data protection. It examines the various legal mechanisms by which privacy and personal data are protected. It provides students with an appreciation of how organisations should be accountable to consumers and the regulator in relation to personal data protection law compliance. The focus will be on Singapore law. Though this course is not intended to be a comparative study of data protection laws across different jurisdictions, students may be introduced to the laws of other key jurisdiction(s) such as the General Data Protection Regulation under the European Union. This will assist students in appreciating that data protection laws are not uniform across jurisdictions.
