With demand for privacy professionals surging, students are seeking an on-ramp into the profession, and law schools are responding. In a first-of-its-kind research project, the IAPP set out to produce a privacy tiering of American Bar Association–accredited U.S. law schools. We tiered the schools according to curriculum offerings in privacy law and defined "privacy law" narrowly, excluding more general courses in cybersecurity or law and technology. Our methods include reviewing materials publicly available on the law schools' websites. In this separate Privacy Perspectives post, University of Maine School of Law Student and IAPP Intern Brandon Berg discusses how his summer internship led to the project. Schools that are not listed or believe they are in the wrong tier are welcome to contact the IAPP by completing this short survey.
