AALS Call For Papers: Comparative Perspectives on Privacy Law



Event Date: 

01/6/16 to 01/10/16

Location name: 

New York City



The AALS Sections on Comparative Law, and on Defamation and Privacy will be sponsoring a joint program at the January 2016 Annual Meeting. The program will consider comparative perspectives on privacy law, particularly in light of recent developments in the European Union. The panel will comprise a combination of invited speakers, and speakers submitting proposals in response to this call for papers.

Paper proposals, works in progress, or completed papers are acceptable for submission. There is no formal requirement as to length of the proposal or final paper. Preference will be given to papers that offer novel scholarly insights on comparative aspects of privacy law. In particular proposals that share insights on comparative privacy practices outside the United States and the European Union will be welcomed. A paper may have already been accepted for publication as long as it will not be published prior to the Annual Meeting.

Proposals may focus on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
(a) The interplay of law, norms, technology and market practices in protecting individual privacy.
(b) Privacy interests in consumer and demographic information.
(c) Privacy in relation to the protection of free speech.
(d) Privacy rights given national security interests.
(e) Health care and privacy.
(f) Financial reporting and privacy.
(g) Privacy in the context of law enforcement imperatives.

Submissions can be accepted only from those affiliated with AALS member institutions.

Please submit your paper or proposal by Friday, April 10, 2015 at 5:00 p.m E.S.T. to Professor Sudha Setty (Chair, AALS Section on Comparative Law), Western New England School of Law, ssetty@law.wne.edu or to Professor Jacqueline Lipton (Chair, AALS Section on Defamation and Privacy), University of Akron School of Law, jlipton@uakron.edu.
