Daniel Cooper, Joe Jones, Caroline Wilson Palow, Herke Kranenborg
This session will examine the emerging body of EU case law interpreting some of the key doctrines underpinning the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation. For years, there was scant decisional case law in Europe, but that is beginning to change, and quickly, as the number of Member State referrals to the Court of Justice of the European Union rises. We will consider the CJEU’s decisions in Wirtschaftsakademie and Fashion ID focused on the concept of joint controller; Schrems II and La Quadrature du Net addressing international data transfers; and other cases of interest.
