Law Society of B.C.’s 3rd Annual Rule of Law Lecture: Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin & Richard Peck, Q.C. on “Privacy, Technology and The Rule of Law”

The third annual LSBC Rule of Law Lecture took place on Tuesday, June 25, 2019 at UBC Robson Square. The speakers addressed subjects covered extensively in this course, particularly “whither regulation?” and how privacy law fits (or not) in a digital world. Given that the speakers were the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, former chief justice of the Supreme Court of Canada, and Richard Peck, QC., the perspectives shared were particularly thoughtful, learned, rigorous and balanced. Mr. Peck’s succinct history of privacy law is masterful in illustrating both its importance and limitations in a digital world where contractual consent is so easily obtained.
