Cyber Law (SD 330)
Internet and global networking are changing the way we think about law. Users from all over the world are communicating in real time using emails, Twitter, Facebook. People use Internet to access their bank accounts, to plan their holidays, to buy goods and to check their medical conditions. All of this creates challenges for practitioners and scholars, who are forced to consider Internet as a lens through which existing legal concepts should be considered.? This course will expose students to cases involving trespass to chattel in cyberspace, consumer protection and privacy issues online, problems connected to jurisdiction and judgment recognition, regulation of free speech and many other extremely interesting topics. A technical background is not required. This course may satisfy the law school's upper level writing requirement.
