Privacy & Information Law Research Guide

This research guide focuses on U.S. state and federal privacy and information law.

Introduction

There are numerous regulations and agencies that govern aspects of privacy and information law; a complete review of these is beyond the scope of this guide.  If you're not sure what regulations or agencies are relevant to your research project, you may want to begin with a treatise, such as one or more listed on the Secondary Sources page of this guide. 

For information on administrative research generally, see our Administrative Law Research Guide and the Administrative Law Research Tutorial.  For help finding the Federal Register and C.F.R. in print and online, see the "Finding Federal Regulations" box, left.  For help finding a specific state's regulations, consult that state's research guide.

Select additional resources for researching privacy regulations and agency materials are listed below.
