About this training:

This training (slides) explains how to navigate issues central to most HIV confidentiality cases.  It includes:

  • A brief overview of New York’s HIV confidentiality statute and other relevant privacy laws,
  • A review of administrative and litigation remedies,
  • Effective ways to counsel clients about options,
  • Strategies for choosing legal claims, calculating damages, proceeding under a pseudonym, and other issues; and
  • Sample forms.

This training is for:

  • Attorneys representing individuals in HIV confidentiality breach matters – including pro bono lawyers who do not generally practice in this area; and

Though designed for attorneys in New York, Part 3 of the training contains information useful to attorneys in other states.
