The semester will begin with an introduction to cyber law and policy, and then turn to an examination of several key topics, including: international security issues related to State and non-State actors and their behavior in cyberspace; cybersecurity frameworks; cybercrime; Internet policy issues, including Internet governance, human rights and free speech online, and privacy in the digital age; and finally a look ahead to the legal and policy implications of the latest emerging technologies. The seminar will conclude with a practical exercise on negotiating cyberspace law and policy issues in an international multilateral setting. No specialized knowledge of computers or the Internet is required for the seminar.
