What Is Privacy Law?

Shipman64.jpgWhen you choose to study privacy law at Santa Clara Law, you will be immersed in the heart of Silicon Valley, a leading center of new technologies that both depend on people’s private information and help enhance their privacy.  In addition to a privacy law course, we offer numerous other courses that explore privacy issues from many angles.  Our Silicon Valley location gives you access to top Internet and high tech companies for networking, internships, and careers.  Santa Clara Law alumni work at top companies wrestling with cutting-edge privacy issues, such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, eBay, and Apple.

“Santa Clara Law introduced me to intellectual property and privacy law, fueled my passion for high-tech, and connected me with companies in Silicon Valley like eBay, which laid the cornerstone for my legal career.”
