The New York-based Yeshiva University Benjamin N. Cardozo Law School has announced plans to launch an online Master's in Data and Privacy Law.
The new MSL in Data and Privacy Law is aimed at non-lawyers who are looking to understand the basics of data and privacy law. A pilot version of the program launched last fall.
According to the school, those who may be interested in this program include information security professionals, small business owners, and startup entrepreneurs in the technology space.
“Laws and regulations form the backdrop for a lot of the work that non-lawyers do, particularly around managing data,” says Professor Felix Wu.
The program will comprise of 30 credit hours including a capstone project and will typically take between 18 and 24 months to complete. The MSL's curriculum includes a number of courses, including for example, "Cybersecurity," "Privacy Law," and "Internet Law," among others.
The priority scholarship deadline for Cardozo's Online MSL in Data and Privacy Law is May 31. The final deadline for fall intake is July 10.
