The Second Annual Sidley Austin Distinguished Lecture on Big Data Law and Policy

“Must Privacy Give Way to Use Regulation?”
Thursday, November 9, 2017, 4:00 pm

The Second Annual Sidley Austin Distinguished Lecture on Big Data Law and Policy will be held on Thursday, November 9 at 4pm in the Barrister Club (25 W 11th Ave). Helen Nissenbaum, Professor of Information Science at Cornell Tech will deliver a lecture titled “Must Privacy Give Way to Use Regulation?”

This presentation will critically analyze the popular argument that the traditional ‘notice and choice’ framework for protecting information privacy is untenable in the big data era and must give way to regulations on the uses of data analytics. Nissenbaum's work argues that to abandon the regulation of information collection in favor of such ‘use regulation’ would undermine a cornerstone of individual freedom.

Professor Neil Richards of the Washington University School of Law will provide commentary and engage Professor Nissenbaum in debate. A public reception will follow the lecture.
