Call for Papers: Municipalities and Privacy Protection

Seton Hall Law School’s Institute for Privacy Protection is pleased to announce a Call for Papers for its conference “New and Nontraditional Actors in Privacy and Social Media Regulation,” which will be held on Friday, November 3, 2017 at Seton Hall Law School. The conference will highlight the growing trend of unexpected players filling in the vacuum left by the federal government in privacy and social media regulation. The Institute looks forward to bringing together legal scholars, members of government, and practitioners to examine the ways in which new players are regulating businesses to promote privacy protection.

The conference will have one presentation selected through a call for papers focusing on the role of municipalities in promoting privacy protection.

To be considered, an abstract and CV should be submitted to the Institute’s Faculty Fellow, Najarian Peters at Najarian.peters@shu.edu. Although there is no publication requirement, preference will be given to abstracts accompanied by a paper draft.

The deadline for submission is August 10. The Institute will cover the travel and lodging accommodations of the selected speaker.

The Institute for Privacy Protection was created in 2016 and seeks to educate consumers and businesses and to provide interdisciplinary forums to address emerging privacy issues. The Institute also promotes academic research and educates businesses on proper privacy practices in commercial advertising and consumers in their privacy rights.
