[Learning Cyberlaw in Cyberspace]

Module Authors      |       Project Team      |      Acknowledgements
Fundamentally, Learning Cyberlaw in Cyberspace is designed to solve a problem faced by those teaching in this developing field of cyberspace law: compiling, selecting, and editing appropriate and current reading material in a rapidly evolving field of law. In teaching about the intersection of law and computer technologies the possible material includes case decisions, statutes, treaties, essays, court complaints and other legal filings, and articles. A standard law school casebook can take years to write and involves gathering these various materials, carefully editing them, and providing notes to assist students in understanding the diversity of material presented. The absence of a traditional casebook for courses in this field is probably best attributed to the rapidly changing nature of the law in this area; by the time any book made it to press through traditional publishing channels it would be outdated.

While the emergence of cyberspace as a global phenomenon has created this problem, The Learning Cyberlaw in Cyberspace Law attempts to harness the benefits of hypertext media to alleviate some of the problems of teaching in this field. Through the Learning Cyberlaw in Cyberspace project, an initial group of ten professors and academics were selected to create a core set of subject modules. In this divide and conquer approach, each collaborating professor was able to devote their full attention to one aspect of the field of cyberlaw.

The Learning Cyberlaw in Cyberspace site and the initial learning modules have been the a collaborative effort of many individuals at many institutions throughout the United States. Module Authors
