I am not a privacy professional but want to become one. Just bought the CIPP/US book and need to study for the exam. Any tips?

If you are looking for privacy resources Prof. Solove’s conferences are great and go into more detail. IAPP tends to be 101 level but a great place to network.

Low billable, low pressure work in privacy law? Slowly realizing that as my boys get older, the money isn’t worth what I’m missing out on. Currently a tech litigation associate with lots of hearing, depo and trial experience (I’ve appeared on my own at hearings/depos) at a well respected firm. I have limited privacy experience despite being hired for that reason… Have my CIPM and CIPP/US /E and /C. Remote preferred; hubs is pilot with cool intl transfer opportunities. Money isn’t issue.
