LAW 6568

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

This is a survey course in Internet law, with particular emphasis on privacy and security.  It is designed to teach lawyers what they need to know to work effectively with computer technologists, and vice versa.  Topics covered may vary based on recent events, but will typically include jurisdiction, free speech, privacy, cybersecurity, e-commerce, digital property, intermediary liability, and network neutrality. What unites these disparate areas of law is that, in each of them, computer and network technologies are challenging settled legal understandings in similar ways.  We will explore these recurring patterns of legal disruption and predict how they will play out online and offline.
