Webinar on Commentary and Principles on Jurisdictional Conflicts over Transfers of Personal Data Across Borders

Last month, The Sedona Conference published The Sedona Conference Commentary and Principles on Jurisdictional Conflicts over Transfers of Personal Data Across Borders, exploring the underlying tensions currently in the law and proposing six key principles of choice-of-law with respect to personal data. It addresses the role of comity analysis as a bulwark against chaos, how comity should be applied in this context, and when comity cannot be the answer, how conflicts should be resolved.

Several members of the drafting team, representing diverse professional and geographic perspectives, will participate in a public webinar on Wednesday, 31 July 2019 to explain the Commentary, answer your questions, and address your comments. The webinar will be “live” for those who can attend at the scheduled time, but due to the world-wide interest in this project, it will be recorded and made available for registered attendees to view at their convenience. Please register for the webinar here. TheCommentary, which may be downloaded here, is open for public comment through 10 August 2019, and comments may be submitted to comments@sedonaconference.org.
