Information Privacy Summer Institute

Privacy InstitutePrivacy has become a headline-maker, driving record levels of engagement and growth in the profession. You can be apart of it and a fascinating field of law with international law dimensions. Law firms, banks, insurance companies, businesses, educational institutions, healthcare providers-- nearly every enterprise in the U.S. is required to comply with information privacy and data security laws, and many are hiring JDs who are IAPP privacy-certified.

Information Privacy

The Center has a leading program in data privacy law, integrating policy-related privacy issues into our law clinic, and helping students get hands-on training through externship placements in various corporate legal departments. We work closely with and have externship placements at the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), the world’s largest privacy organization with headquarters in nearby Portsmouth, NH.  Maine Law students who complete coursework and an externship in information privacy have access to heavily discounted IAPP certification exams and training, including the Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP/US and CIPP/E), unique and valuable credential in this fast-growing area of law. Our unique Information Privacy Summer Institute and annual conference in privacy and data protection attracts top scholars and practitioners to Maine Law, and offers students a one-in-a-kind opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and experience in privacy law.
