Open Access to Law: Swiss Data Privacy Cases Now Online


I’m delighted to announce that our Research Center for Information Law at the University of St. Gallen – usually focusing more on basic research rather than implementing project work – has just launched an online data privacy case law collection (in German and French) that features the entire collection of cases decided by the Swiss Commission for Data Privacy and Freedom of Information from 1993 – 2006. The Commission has now been integrated into the “Tribunal administrativ federal“, the branch of the Supreme Court that deals with administrative law issues. Free online access to the collection is particularly exciting since only part of the Commission’s decisions has been published so far. Thanks are due to the Swiss Federal Chancellery and the St. Gallen University’s Research Council for financial support. And, of course, special thanks to Silke Ernst, LL.M., for excellent project management.
