More on Schrems/Safe Harbor: Jean Monnet Center-NYU to hold lunchtime seminar on Thursday October 22 (RSVP req'd)

The Jean Monnet Center for International and Regional Economic Law & Justice at NYU Law School is organizing lunchtime seminar on the recent and high-profile Schrems/Safe Harbor judgment of the EU Court of Justice.  The Court’s ruling invalidated the arrangements for transatlantic data flows, on the ground that US law does not offer adequate protection of Europeans' right to privacy.  It raises a range of important questions concerning international jurisdiction, surveillance oversight, privacy standards, transatlantic commerce, and internet regulation.

The seminar will take place on Thursday October 22 from 1:00-2:30 pm in the 1st Floor Lounge at 22 Washington Square North in New York City.  The discussion will be introduced by a panel, consisting of Hauser Global Scholar Thomas Streinz, Senior Global Emile Noël Fellow Professor Piet Eeckhout, Professor Richard Epstein, and Zachary Goldman of the Center on Law and Security.  Professor Gráinne de Búrca will moderate.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by email to jeanmonnet@nyu.edu.  Lunch will be served from 12:30 PM and the presentation will begin at 1:00 PM.
