Welcome to the Antitrust, UCL and Privacy Section!
The Section has some big news: Our section name has changed! We have now added "privacy" to the name—our formal name now is the "Antitrust, UCL and Privacy" Section. As many of you well know, the practice of privacy law is growing by leaps and bounds. We are increasingly hearing of new federal and state actions and investigations by federal, state and local entities arising out of issues surrounding privacy. Earlier this year, the Executive Committee and the State Bar realized that no Section currently explicitly covered privacy law. We felt that Privacy Law fit best within our Section—and the State Bar’s Board of Trustees agreed with us. In July, the Board of Trustees formally voted to change our Section name to incorporate privacy. We are very excited about this change: it will permit our Section to continue doing all the great educational work in antitrust and consumer protection law, while at the same time adding many new programs devoted to privacy . This will give our Section members even more value-added! To help the Executive Committee and the State Bar in this transition, we have assembled a stellar team of privacy law specialists into a Privacy Law Subcommittee that will be spearheading this transition. The members are: Lori Chang, Greenberg Traurig, LLP; Jonathan Levine, Pritzker Levine LLP; Michael H. Rubin, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati; Bryson Santaguida, Google Inc.; Tina Wolfson, Ahdoot & Wolfson, PC; Evan M. Wooten, Mayer Brown LLP; and Lauren Foster Wu, Genomic Health, Inc. The Subcommittee will be co-chaired by Executive Committee members Dominique Alepin, Mayer Brown LLP, and Jill M. Manning, Steyer Lowenthal Boodrookas Alvarez & Smith LLP. Please contact them if you have any ideas!
Over the coming months, you can look forward to new offerings from our Section on privacy including e-briefs, webinars, panels and conferences. We are particularly interested in publishing more articles sounding in privacy. Over the past few years, Competition has offered many different articles on privacy, but, with our name change now, we are hoping to have regular privacy law articles. Please consider contributing!
At the October 10th state bar meeting in Anaheim, I will be passing on the torch of Section leadership to Paul Riehle of the Sedgwick LLC firm in San Francisco. Paul has been an outstanding member of the Executive Committee for five years now and I know he will make a great Chair. Please join me in congratulating Paul on a well-deserved accolade!
