The year 2019 may be a turning point for data privacy law. Privacy law in the United States is famously a hole-ridden patchwork of state laws, sectoral legislation, and consumer protection. Whether in response to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation or to California’s enactment of its Consumer Privacy Act, over this past year state and federal legislators have been proposing new data privacy laws at an energetic rate.

How will we govern the technology of the near future? Will the United States join the rest of the world in recognizing data privacy rights or will it take its own approach? Will these choices even matter in practice, given the long reach of both EU and California law?

This conference will bring together academics, practitioners, technologists, and regulators to discuss the near future of U.S. data privacy law. Specifically, we will explore municipal bans on surveillance technology, new state privacy laws, the future role of the Federal Trade Commission, and proposed federal legislation.
