In the digital age, data breaches and cybersecurity issues regularly make headlines, and personal information is a coveted commodity. Our legal structure must protect privacy rights while preserving commerce and innovation. But who ensures compliance with these laws and anticipates threats to information security?

The answer: information privacy attorneys.
The problem: there aren’t nearly enough of them.

At the University of Maine School of Law, students pursuing our Certificate in Information Privacy Law develop skills in a highly sought-after niche of the legal realm.

Privacy isn’t dead – it’s hiring.
