Cyber Law



 



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on cyberlaw. This course focuses on a variety of legal topics as they relate to online communications, agreements and transactions. While this is an introductory-level course, a little background in contract, tort and freedom of speech law is recommended as the course touches on all these areas but does not have the time to comprehensively introduce each area of law.

We will start with a discussion of jurisdiction, which is the study of which states and laws have authority over which parties. This is especially important in cyberlaw issues because transactions and communications often happen between parties in different states and different countries. We will also discuss the enforceability of agreements between the parties to settle the case in a given state or through arbitration and the enforceability of judgments across state lines.
