The globalization of the world economy, the ever-increasing importance of the Internet, and the growth of electronic commerce have made data protection and privacy law an important area of concern for businesses, governments, and individuals. At present, governments around the world are seeking increasing access to personal data for law enforcement and other purposes; companies are processing huge amounts of personal data; and many individuals publish their personal data on the Internet on a regular basis. Consequently most lawyers and legal advisers will come across privacy and data protection issues sooner or later in their work. Another consequence of these developments is that privacy and data protection law have grown from being national issues to ones of international concern.

EU law plays a crucial role in this area since privacy and data protection issues are mainly harmonised.

This course will concentrate on European privacy and data protection law related to the Internet, electronic communications and online social media.
