The Cyberlaw Clinic is excited to be a part of an innovative collaboration launched this week by Fordham Law School’s Center on Law and Information Policy (“CLIP”). CLIP has developed and released a curriculum for privacy education geared toward middle-school students and has teamed up with institutions at law schools nationwide (including Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet & Society) to implement it. The Clinic — in collaboration with Berkman’s Youth and Media Lab — will be helping to adapt and roll out the curriculum to middle-schoolers next spring.
The project builds on the Clinic’s long and growing docket of projects relating to privacy, including a suite of activities that concern the scope of legal protections for kids’ private information under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. More information about the initiative is available at the CLIP website and the Berkman Center website.
