Welcome to Hogan Lovells’ The Data Chronicles, brought to you by the firm’s global Privacy and Cybersecurity practice. This multimedia series is dedicated to the ever-changing legal and regulatory developments in the world of data, privacy, and cybersecurity.

In this episode, Scott Loughlin, co-lead of the Privacy and Cybersecurity practice, is joined by senior counsel and co-founder of the Hogan Lovells Privacy and Cybersecurity practice, Christopher Wolf, for a discussion on the beginnings of privacy law. Chris details how he, along with other key originators, drove the creation of privacy as a distinct legal practice area. He provides great insight on the evolution of the industry, and more importantly, his forecast on where privacy is headed and what new attorneys or law students should know as they consider a focused practice in privacy.
