Prof. Stuart Hargreaves (Chinese University of Hong Kong) will deliver the latest seminar in the Centre for Business Law and Practice Seminar Series.

The Centre for Business Law and Practice is delighted to welcome Prof. Stuart Hargreaves (Chinese University of Hong Kong) to deliver a public seminar which will appeal to anyone interested in privacy law, the media, intellectual property, human rights and social justice.


The abstract for Stuart's talk will be available shortly.

About the Speaker

Prof. Stuart Hargreaves is Director of the LLB programme and Assistant Dean for Undergraduate Studies.  He joined the Faculty in July of 2013 following the completion of his doctorate in law at the University of Toronto, where his thesis considered the privacy and legal implications of widespread ‘geo-immersive’ surveillance – using new mapping technologies to record public space for commercial purposes.  It was supported by a major grant from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.  Prof. Hargreaves also holds a BCL from Oxford University, where he wrote a dissertation on the interaction between proposed privacy standards in APEC and European laws regulating the outward flow of personal data to non-European states.  He also holds a JD from Osgoode Hall Law School and a BA in politics & sociology from McGill University.

While completing his doctorate Prof. Hargreaves was an adjunct faculty member at Osgoode Hall Law School (teaching property law and information & privacy law). He has also worked as a policy advisor to the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic and practiced law for the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General, in the constitutional law and policy branch.  His areas of research and teaching reflect this background, with a dual focus on information & privacy law and constitutional law & legal theory. Prof. Hargreaves welcomes discussions with LLB or JD students who are interested in writing independent research papers on those topics; prospective PhD students should, however, follow the established application procedures rather than contacting him directly with a proposal. Prof. Hargreaves won the Faculty's Teaching Excellence Award in 2017.
