We currently have the following three standing committees and anticipate more will follow as our section continues to grow.
Privacy Treatise Committee
The Privacy Treatise Committee publishes the California Privacy Law Treatise. This master treatise comprehensively documents and describes this area of law, which presents a broad and rich palette for practitioners and regulators. Each year, seasoned practitioners of differing perspectives are engaged to update new developments in this area of law. A team of peer reviewers also drawn from the ranks of California’s leading practitioners are tasked with the review of the yearly update. This treatise is published in paper with Matthew Bender (LexisNexis) and online with both Matthew Bender and Westlaw. In early 2021, the Committee will be publishing the California Consumer Privacy Act Handbook.
Privacy Publications Committee
The Privacy Publications Committee publishes regular privacy news updates and in-depth articles about the newest developments in California privacy law and other privacy laws that impact Californians and businesses in the state. The Committee is in the process of re-designing our webpage to serve as a resource for California privacy professionals. It will include a Privacy Law Corner offering a summary and links to important California privacy laws; California Privacy Law Profiles, interviews with a wide variety of privacy practitioners to learn about their practices, hot issues of the day, and how they manage to keep informed about issues in this constantly evolving area of the law; and more.

Privacy Education Committee
The Privacy Education Committee organizes and sponsors webinars, conferences and offers MCLE programming to keep California lawyers up to date on developments in privacy law. Our educational events include speakers from all walks of privacy law including plaintiffs’ counsel, defense lawyers, government regulators, and agency representatives.
