Acclaim for Advanced Introduction to Privacy Law:

‘Megan Richardson's work on privacy is evangelical. It explains the origins and teaching of privacy and navigates wisely between hope and despair with respect to privacy in this age of Surveillance Capitalism. This well written gospel (or “good news”) of privacy law will not only inform the mind, but more importantly, inspire vibrant spiritual adherence to this unique construct of the human species.’
