I hope your midterms are going well, and that you are mentally recovering like we all need. This is a recap of the general body meeting and a chance for us to share our plans for the rest of the semester (only so much left). If you couldn’t make the meeting, find the slides here.

Data Breach Tabletop CLE:
Have you ever imagined what the most exciting day in a privacy lawyers career might look like? Well, good news: wait no further. The Privacy Law Association is hosting a CLE simulation wherein participants will be tasked with a privacy situation and asked for their response. Students are allowed and encouraged to participate. A background in privacy is not required.
This event will run from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in the Auditorium, WA14, on Wednesday, November 15. Please register (for free) in advance at https://privacylawnyls.com/event/data-breach-tabletop-cle/
We heard you loud and clear:
At the meeting this past Tuesday, we noted many of you were interested in how to secure your own privacy. We couldn’t agree more that, as future lawyers handling confidential information, we all need knowledge of securing our own privacy. So, to that end, our Privacy in the News section will focus on ways to protect your privacy.
Privacy in the News:
Next time you consider having a DNA test done, maybe don’t. Hackers have stolen the data of possibly millions.
When our phones, routers, and even traffic lights collect data, is there any way to protect it?
Here are 12 steps to further protect your own online privacy. Let’s all try and practice just one to know we are safer.
