On Sept. 20, the Cardozo Journal of Comparative and International Law organized a CLE program on Cross-Border Data Privacy Issues, co-sponsored by AABANY. The distinguished panel addressed the data privacy issues that companies face in cross border transactions and other burgeoning issues in the hot topic that is data privacy. The event took place in the Jacob Burns Moot Court Room at Cardozo School of Law.

The panel was comprised of:

  • Nick Akerman, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney LLP, and Author, Computer Fraud and Data Protection Blog
  • Joanna Levin, Corporate Counsel, Pfizer
  • David Ray, Director of Privacy and Protection Consulting, Consillio

Dan Goldberger, Cardozo Adjunct Professor, Partner, Dorsey & Whitney LLP, served as moderator. Charles Yablon, Professor, Cardozo School of Law and Director of the Cardozo Data Law Initiative, welcomed the audience and gave opening remarks. Two CLE credits were available in Areas of Professional Practice.

A reception followed which gave attendees the opportunity to continue discussing data privacy issues after the conclusion of the CLE program. Among those that came to the CLE presentation and stayed for the reception were Membership Committee Co-Chair Jack Chen, Intellectual Property Committee Co-Chair Jeff Tang, and Litigation Committee Co-Chair Dai Wai Chin Feman.
