How is personal information being collected, used and shared online, and how does the market for personal information operate? Is there a common understanding about what personal information should be protected, and if not, why not?
What, if any, are the major privacy risks posed by Big Data? Are the major risks actually “downstream”?
Do we have a sense of what Californians currently think about online privacy issues?
How does California’s notice-based approach to privacy compare with other states and countries, and what are the pros and cons of seeking to move to a more “opt-in”-type approach?
What might be some of the major privacy challenges in a “post cookies” world?

Judge William A. Ingram
Judge William A. Ingram served as a Judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California for twenty-six years, including three years as its Chief Judge. The William A. Ingram Inn of Court, which draws its pupils from Stanford, Santa Clara and Lincoln Law Schools, was renamed to honor Judge Ingram, one of the Inn’s founders, and Judge Ingram’s family designated the Inn to receive memorial contributions to endow this Memorial Symposium.
Judge Ingram was a mentor to many lawyers and judges in our community, and the Inn and this symposium seek to promote the ideals of civility, collegiality, and professionalism that he personified.
