Cyberlaw Across the Practice Spectrum

Course Abbreviation: 
LWPER 997
Credits: 
3
Credit Only: N Anon Gr: Y

“Cyberlaw” is a loosely used term that means different things to different attorneys, but understanding cyberlaw is essential for practitioners. Cyber or online activities occur in every facet of modern human life, and this ubiquity of cyber or online activity in business and personal life demands every attorney, regardless of practice area, be familiar with the melded body of laws that compromise cyberlaw.

 

Cyberlaw Across the Practice Spectrum (CAPS) defines in practical terms what cyberlaw is, identifies the sources of cyber law and teaches students to understand how these manifold sources of law – integrated together – comprise “cyberlaw.” The course addresses by subject/practice area how and why cyber law is now an essential component in practicing law across the spectrum, including but not limited to electronic evidence issues.
