Much has been written about the regulatory and compliance aspects of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, better known as the GDPR. However, what has received much less attention is how the GDPR can have implications for U.S. litigation. The Europeans call it “privacy” – we call it “discovery.” These two concepts are on a potential collision course.
In this practical webinar, you will learn about the human privacy concerns that the GDPR was intended to protect and the rights given to individuals to protect “their” data. You will also learn whether those rights will be recognized and protected by U.S. courts when discovery demands reach across the seas to Europe and its citizens.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
- Describe the different views of privacy in the U.S. and Europe
- Answer the following questions:
- Can privacy ever truly be protected?
- Does the GDPR offer realistic solutions?
- Will the U.S. follow suit?
- For litigators – if the courts haven’t weighed in yet, what are we to do?
- Is it time to reign in broad U.S. discovery? Do we have the tools to do so?
