Governance Workshop: Transparency and Privacy | L4108

This seminar will focus on cutting-edge legal issues related to governance, with a special focus on information: transparency, government accountability, information collection, and privacy. It will also provide an opportunity for students to engage in substantial scholarship of their own, improving their writing skills and providing insights into avenues for publishing written work. Most weeks, the Workshop will host a professor from another school to present a draft of a paper that has not yet been published. Students will carefully read the draft and participate in an in-depth discussion with the author. Through this process, students will have the opportunity to engage with many of the leading thinkers in the field. Some weeks, substantive material will be covered related to the course topics, including topics related to writing legal scholarship. Students will develop their own writing both in the workshop itself, and in scholarship groups of other students that will be assigned for the semester. Students will be expected to produce a significant piece of scholarship related to the topical area of this course by the end of the semester.
