School of Law hosts international cyberspace law symposium, Sept. 18

The Creighton University School of Law hosts a far-ranging look at cyberspace law in international, comparative and transnational perspectives, Tuesday, Sept. 18.

“International Perspectives in Cyberspace Law: Privacy, Security and Governance,” featuring guest speakers from the United Kingdom and the European Union, plenary sessions and panel discussions will focus on the latest policies governing privacy, data security and the uses of technology.

David Flint, senior partner and head of the intellectual property, technology and commercial team at MacRoberts, a law firm based in Glasgow, Scotland, will speak on general data protection regulation (GDPR) and its enforcement across international boundaries.

A Creighton School of Law visiting professor, Hon. Dragoljub Popović, a former diplomat, judge on the European Court of Human Rights, and an attorney and an expert on the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, will examine European perspectives on privacy law through the lens of human rights.

From the American side, Cheryl Burtzel, an attorney with the Duggins, Wren, Mann and Romero of Austin, Texas, and Tom Kelley of McGrath North in Omaha, will discuss privacy and data security in a dynamic environment.

All plenary speakers, with Creighton law professor Ed Morse, will take place in a panel discussion pondering the question: “Should the US Be more like the EU, or Vice Versa? Policy Directions for Regulating Privacy and Data Security.”

Registration for the event can be found here. Attorneys can receive continuing legal education credit for this program.

Check-in is 1:30 to 2 p.m., with a 2 p.m. introduction and welcome from Creighton School of Law Dean Michael Kelly and Leah Gleason, editor-in-chief of the Creighton International and Comparative Law Journal.
