In 1888, legal theorist Thomas Cooley later said that privacy was a personal right (Ivers, 2013).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
