Data Law in a Global Digital Economy


NYU Law, Vanderbilt Hall – 40 Washington Square South, Greenberg Lounge
New York, NY

Data Law in a Global Digital Economy, a symposium held jointly by the NYU Law Review, the Guarini Institute for Global Legal Studies and the Institute for International Law and Justice at NYU School of Law, will examine how law does, should or can affect data ownership, concentration and control in a global digital economy. 

The symposium will take a conceptual approach to the law of data by confronting emerging issues in the global digital economy through analyses grounded in foundational legal concepts such as contracting, torts, property, trusts/fiduciary law and more specialized areas of international economic law such as antitrust, tax and trade law. The symposium will not be centrally focused on detailed analysis of intellectual property law or information privacy law, which already occupy a core place in scholarship on data law, although these areas of law may certainly figure where relevant to concepts and regulatory and structural arguments. Commentators with particular additional expertise will enrich the symposium. Together with the Law Review editors, this symposium will make a significant contribution to the foundations of an important and fast-developing field.
