GDPR Compliance for Law Firms and Solo Practitioners
Created on December 28, 2020
Since it went into effect on May 25, 2018, the GDPR and its unprecedented extra-territorial effect have been the subject of much debate within the legal community, and have inspired many international and U.S. legislators to follow suit and pass privacy laws based on GDPR principles. Many articles, regulatory guidance, and other references are available to help the U.S. attorney advise clients on the new EU legislation, but very few have addressed the issue of what U.S. law firms and solo practitioners advising EU-based clients on various aspects of U.S. law must themselves do to comply with the GDPR. This program will fulfill that gap.
Presented by Stephan Grynwajc, this course will provide a unique perspective for U.S.-based attorneys collecting and processing the personal information of EU residents as part of their practice, and seeking not only a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities under the GDPR but also of how to implement a GDPR compliance program that allows them to document their compliance.
- Examine the GDPR and its major applications for law firms and solo practitioners
- Identify the roles and responsibilities of attorneys as data controllers under the GDPR
- Discuss practical tips on implementing the GDPR in your daily practice
