Internet Law

B792 is taught by J. Tomain

Internet Law is a conceptual (as opposed to a doctrinal) course that explores how technological advancements, such as the internet and other digital technologies, may require reconsideration of existing law and policy in a wide variety of substantive legal areas. In other words, this course provides students the opportunity to reflect on the relationship between law and society in our increasingly digital world through the lens of a wide range of substantive law. Areas of law that may be covered include jurisdictional conflicts, freedom of speech and of the press, intellectual property, criminal law, national security, contracts, intermediary liability, public versus private regulation, and net neutrality. Technical expertise in computer systems is not required. There are no prerequisites for this course. The exam will be a take-home essay(s).
