Deception Is at the Heart of PLSC-Winning Papers

"Each year at the Privacy Law Scholars Conference, organized by the UC Berkeley School of Law and the George Washington University (GWU) School of Law, scholars submit papers that are in progress, to be workshopped with a facilitated discussion amongst attendees. The idea is to bring together the academic privacy community with those working in industry, advocacy, law and government to further privacy thought leadership and facilitate dialogue.

As part of the event, the IAPP awards the two papers that receive the most votes from attendees with a cash prize and a speaking slot at the IAPP Privacy Academy, to be held this year in Seattle, WA, Sept. 30 through Oct. 2. This year, the winners were Ryan Calo, assistant professor at the University of Washington School of Law, and a paper co-written by Dan Solove, professor of law at GWU School of Law, and Woodrow Hartzog, assistant professor at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law."
