Fordham to offer a new, online program in July


A law school in New York is adapting to COVID-19 and wants to ensure that students are prepared for post-pandemic needs.

Fordham University School of Law will be offering a new, online course in July that addresses privacy and technology Law. 

The four-day course Current Issues in Privacy and Technology Law – Online will be held July 20-24 from 10 a.m. to Noon eastern. It covers topics such as government surveillance, why privacy matters and tracking and algorithmic discriminations for commercial businesses.

“The program was designed to speak to specific privacy and technological issues we face in the Covid-19 era, making the topic both interesting and timely,” Toni M. Jaeger-Fine - Assistant Dean, International and Non-J.D. Programs said.

Students who register and complete at least four of the five sessions will receive a certificate and continuing legal education (CLE) credit.

"We are delighted with the enthusiastic response to the program. We already have nearly 100 participants registered and look forward to even more in the week leading up to the program,” Jaeger-Fine said.

The course is free to current Fordham Law students and recent graduates but ranges from $500-$1,500 depending on if a person wants CLE credits or not.
