Event Type

Who should attend?

This event is aimed at those with an interest in Data Protection, and those that deal with data protection as part of their roles at work.

What will the event cover?

The event will highlight the service that JISC Legal provides covering data protection, the legalities of data protection and also will include case studies from one or possibly two institutions concerning data protection policies and procedures.


Jason Miles-Campbell, Service Manager, JISC Legal, University of Strathclyde.

Jason joined JISC Legal in 2004 as the Service Manager. JISC Legal’s role is to ensure that legal issues do not become a barrier to the development and adoption of new information and communication technologies in the UK further and higher education sectors. Jason’s job is to efficiently allocate the Service’s resources to the many demands on its expertise, to lead in terms of the Service’s front line work, and to contribute to the development of its strategy.

Jason studied English Law and French Law at University College London in the dark and distant past. In 1994 he became a lecturer in law, specialising in European law, consumer law, and then IT law, and his ten years’ experience in higher education included a stint as head of department. In 2004, he moved on to join JISC Legal, and has been assisting the further and higher education sectors in his current role since. In 2008, he added an LL.M. in IT and Telecoms Law from Strathclyde University to his qualifications.

Particular interests include copyright law (including the intricacies of open educational resources), access management legal issues, gadgets, travel, Girls Aloud, and haggis wontons (his culinary speciality).
