          The field of privacy law has rapidly arisen out of developments in internet technology over the past decade and is becoming an established specialty. Addressing concerns that arise from cloud data storage, ubiquitous surveillance and big data, privacy law is becoming a focus for many forward-thinking law schools.

          At UC Hastings, the Institute for Innovation Law operates a Privacy and Technology Project that offers coursework and real-world work experiences for students. Now the Institute is partnering with the International Association of Privacy Professionals in a Privacy Pathways program to give students more access to IAPP resources like privacy training and discounted certification exams.

          To hear it from Timothy Yim, the Privacy and Technology Project Interim Director, the IAPP is the key organization for students to get involved with to launch their privacy law careers. “Attaining IAPP certification distinguishes students in the job market,” he said.

          Yim is excited about the new partnership with IAPP because it opens up channels for students to be placed in externships with relevant companies. It will also offer opportunities for students to publish in professional journals and contribute content to IAPP publications. “Because the field is so young, students, if they have something to say, can contribute to the discussions of privacy law,” he said, noting that other fields are already saturated with experts and not as open to student writing.
