Comparative Privacy Law Seminar - LAW 731

2 Hours

Comparative Privacy Law will consider the constitutional protection afforded the right of

privacy in the United States and in the domestic constitutional jurisprudence of three other democratic

countries: Canada, South Africa, and the United Kingdom. In addition, we will study the right of

privacy in the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights, a transnational juridical entity

that hears claims arising under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and

Fundamental Freedoms (commonly called the “European Convention on Human Rights”), and also

consider the emerging privacy jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the European Union, which

follows the decisions of the European Court and enforces the European Charter of Rights (commonly

called “the European Charter”).
