Privacy Law Scholars Conference

Northeastern Law’s Center for Law, Information and Creativity (CLIC) will host the 15th annual Privacy Law Scholars Conference (PLSC 2022) on Thursday and Friday, June 2 and 3, 2022. PLSC is a paper workshop conference. It offers no opportunity or obligation to publish. The goal is to provide support for in-progress scholarship related to information privacy law. To do so, PLSC assembles a wide array of privacy law scholars and practitioners who engage in scholarship. Scholars from non-law disciplines—including but not limited to surveillance studies, technology studies, feminist and queer studies, information studies, critical race studies, social sciences, humanities, and computer science—are critical participants in this interdisciplinary field. The program follows a format in which a discussant, rather than the author, introduces and leads a discussion on a paper. There are no panels or talking heads; attendees read papers in advance and offer constructive feedback as full participants in the workshop. Having your paper accepted is NOT a requirement for attending and contributing to the conference, and indeed many attendees do not present a paper.
