2 Weeks / Noncredit

Introduction to Cyber Law

Online crime, social media mayhem, intellectual property pirating. This two-week session will venture through the US legal system, explore fundamentals of law through the contemporary lens of Internet technology, including social media and other content-sharing applications, and examine emerging law and ethical considerations related to these technologies.  Students will learn to identify and analyze legal issues by studying recent case law, and will practice these skills by dissecting publicly controverted, yet-to-be decided scenarios. Legal battles that start in cyberspace may end in physical space courtrooms, and as part of this course, students will personally experience local courtrooms, and professionals who practice in them.
