Course Description

Cyberspace is the critical infrastructure that runs our world. Yet, much remains ungoverned and the threats are constantly evolving. This course will explore theoretical and practical aspects of nation-state legal issues concerning cyberspace, including computer-related crime, espionage, war, and international governance. The seminar will review key legal cases, policy, and legislation. In tandem with a series of expert guest speakers from the field, the course will reflect on the roles of national and international governments, the legal and ethical dimensions of cybersecurity, the relationship between the public and private sectors, and the increasing tensions between privacy and security.
