Course Overview: The Internet has assumed an invaluable role in domestic and global commerce. Individuals, local businesses, and even multi-national corporations are increasingly relying on the Internet to conduct business. This course focuses on legal issues facing entities as they migrate to an electronic environment and engage in "E-Commerce." This course examines the application of existing and emerging law as it applies to online commerce. Topics covered may include electronic contracting, online marketing, torts in cyberspace, dispute resolution, conflict of laws, electronic payment systems, employee/employer relationships on the Internet, and other cutting-edge subjects. Because E-commerce is intrinsically international in nature, virtually all of the topics covered by this course touch on international or transnational issues. Due to limited time, this course will focus primarily on U.S. law. However, the course will examine the laws of various other countries that deal with the same or similar issues.
