FedSoc Presents: Book talk with Richard Brookhiser on "John Marshall: The Man Who Made the Supreme Court"

  • 12:10PM to 1:00PM
  • Room 120

In 1801, a genial and brilliant Revolutionary War veteran and politician became the fourth chief justice of the United States. He would hold the post for 34 years (still a record), expounding the Constitution he loved. Before he joined the Supreme Court, it was the weakling of the federal government, lacking in dignity and clout. After he died, it could never be ignored again.

Challenging the Silicon Valley Consensus: Data Governance in TPP, USMCA, and Beyond, Thomas Streinz, New York University School of Law

  • 12:10PM to 1:30PM
  • Room 121

This talk offers a critical analysis of recent efforts to craft new rules for the global data economy in trade agreements, such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the ‘new NAFTA’ between the US, Mexico, and Canada (USMCA). Both agreements reflect the Silicon Valley consensus of uninhibited data flows and light touch privacy regulation. The US championed rules for free data flows and against data localization as part of its ‘digital trade agenda’ which adapts trade law instruments to an increasingly data-driven economy.

Flat Light: Data Protection for the Disoriented, From Policy to Practice

  • 12:10PM to 1:00PM
  • Room 122

The world of information security has always had reference points – or ground truths – that, like physical features in a landscape, served as navigational features for practitioners and policymakers alike. As time has passed and the state of information security has become more uncertain, these features have eroded. As reference points, they are now either unhelpful (at best) or disinformative (at worst). A deep state of disorientation is now upon us - in privacy, in security, and beyond.
