Unit sequentially progresses legal skills in addressing several themes:
critiques of privacy, confidentiality and national security law (including human rights and commercial information sharing);
integration of theory, law and practice in development, application and appraisal of measures that strengthen or erode personal privacy, law enforcement, network security and the protection of commercially sensitive information;
drivers of policy development and legal change (eg the impact of incidents such as the Telstra data breach and Spycatcher trial, initiatives such as WikiLeaks and frameworks such as the EU Data Protection Directives);
awareness of legal frameworks that includes state enactments, common law and industry codes;
the interrelationship of privacy and access principles/practice with other UC Law units.
On completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. demonstrate an understanding of basic principles of Australian privacy, confidentiality, access and data protection law;
2. demonstrate an awareness of key statutes and case law, and of the main regulatory bodies at the national and state/territory levels;
3. demonstrate an understanding of development of that law in response to international obligations and domestic technological change and those key issues of policy that underlie the law;
4. demonstrate an understanding of the relevance and application of international agreements, standards and practice;
5. demonstrate an understanding of practice in this field, including employment undertakings, online consumer agreements, application for suppression orders and use of access statutes such as the Freedom of Information Act 1988 (Cth).
