The Center for Law + Innovation connects students to opportunities in intellectual property, information privacy law, and cybersecurity. Courses and career opportunities offered by the Center include:

  • Certificate in Information Privacy Law: Developed in partnership with the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), students earn the Certificate in Information Privacy Law through a combination of experiential learning, coursework (including the Summer Information Privacy Institute), a writing project on a privacy-related topic, and certification from the IAPP.
  • Information Privacy Summer Institute: The Center hosts a unique summer institute in privacy law bringing scholars from around the world to teach J.D. students and professionals about global privacy and cybersecurity law. The twelfth annual event was hosted virtually and featured courses taught by leading privacy professionals from May 24 – June 11, 2021. A special one-day Privacy in Practice Conference was also held virtually on June 11, 2021 as part of the Summer Institute.
  • Externships: The Center has helped develop a series of externships and internships in privacy and regulatory compliance at a variety of businesses and government entities.
