A debrief following interdisciplinary symposium on The Future of Privacy Enforcement
Friday, May 19, 2023

Leading privacy law and computer science scholars met March 31-April 1, 2023 at the Harvard Law School to identify and propose solutions to the challenges that inhibit the enforcement of privacy rights in the United States in “Beyond the FTC: The Future of Privacy Enforcement”.

The interdisciplinary symposium was organized by Professor Mihailis Diamantis (University of Iowa College of Law) and Professor Rishab Nithyanand (University of Iowa Department of Computer Science). The symposium was jointly sponsored by the Iowa Innovation, Business, and Law Center, which provided generous funding and hosted the official remote viewing location at the University of Iowa (UI) College of Law, and Harvard’s Journal of Law and Technology, which will publish the proceedings in a future issue. The event drew over 300 attendees, in-person and online.
