Global Data Privacy Law
Last Updated Date:   10 June 2022


5 Credits,  Semester 1

Course Description:
This course will explore the main themes and approaches in global data privacy law in light of various international frameworks (OECD, APEC, ASEAN) and a cross-section of national laws from North America, Europe and Asia. Many countries have enacted new data privacy laws or amended existing laws in recent years. Where there are many similarities in the substantive requirements and intended policy outcomes of such laws, there are also differences in how such laws are applied in the context of different legal and socio-economic systems and there is no widely-accepted international framework for cross-border data transfers. This environment presents challenges to organisations which operate across different jurisdictions or which are seeking to enter new markets. This area of law also continues to face new challenges as developments in business and technology present new risks to the protection of individuals’ personal data and privacy. This course will also consider the role of data privacy laws in regulating social media and the Internet, AI and machine learning and cybersecurity.
