Special Topics - Internet Law and Policy

This course examines the social norms, market factors, technology and law that influence Internet.  Five content areas within this framework make up the scope of the course: Internet governance, communications, privacy, security, and intellectual property.  Students will be expected to do graduate level reading and analysis, including primary case law (although there is no prerequisite to have taken a law course), contribute to a robust classroom discourse and write a substantial research paper focused on a topic within the scope. This course is part of the Trust, Assurance and Cybersecurity Certificate (TACC) Program.
