UNILAG Faculty of Law Holds a Webinar on the Nigerian Data Protection Bill 2020


The Faculty of Law, University of Lagos will hold a Webinar to examine the significant provisions of the Nigeria Data Protection Bill 2020, which the Nigeria National Identity Management Commission (NNIMC) recently published a call for comments on.

The Webinar is scheduled as follows:
Date: Wednesday, September 9, 2020
4:30 p.m.
Join Zoom Meeting:
Meeting ID: 654 0967 3052

The Webinar, which will feature experts from both academia and industry, within and outside the Faculty, will examine the bill from four broad perspectives;

  1. the extent to which its provisions protect individuals’ fundamental rights, particularly their right to privacy.
  2. whether and how the Bill recognises and addresses challenges posed to processing of personal data by new technologies.
  3. the extent to which the Bill models best practices in established data protection regimes, and
  4. whether and how the Bill addresses the processing of children’s personal data as a particularly vulnerable group of technology users.

This bill is an important landmark in the development of data protection regime in Nigeria and after the webinar, the Faculty of Law, UNILAG will issue a communique.
