On Friday 8th March, 2013, the LL.M. in Public Law and the LL.M. in Law, Technology and Governance at the National University of Ireland Galway convened a symposium on “Privacy from Birth to Death and Beyond: European and American Perspectives”. Discussion ranged from whether we have a “right to be forgotten” online, the role of contract law in protecting consumer privacy, the confused rules that govern post-mortem privacy, how to balance the participation and protection of children in the online world and the challenges that face practitioners who have to rely on case law and legislation that were developed without the digital environment in mind.
