Book Spotlight - March 2019

Posted by Peel Law Association on 12 March 2019

Continue to watch this space for promotions highlighting one of the books recently added to the PLA Library collection, as well as old favourites we think may be of interest to our PLA Library users.

Today's spotlight is on the book, Digital Privacy: Criminal, Civil and Regulatory Litigation by Gerald Chan and Nader R. Hasan. This text was recently added to the PLA Library Collection and is available for borrowing by current PLA Members.

From the Publisher

The arrival of the digital age and technological advancements of the 21st century has created new and unanticipated challenges to privacy. As the law and society's understanding of privacy have evolved in response to those challenges, the need for a book that examines that evolution was born. As they explain in the Preface to this volume, in developing the content for this book, the editors have aimed to "produce an inter-disciplinary approach to understand and litigate issues at the nexus of privacy, law and technology" in the digital age.
