Course Descriptions

International Internet and IP Law (2 credits)

A survey of international intellectual property through the lens of the Internet, this course deals with the intersection of traditional intellectual property law and the Internet. Because this area of the law is in flux, particularly in the international and constitutional arenas, the course will include a discussion of current cases and events, supplemented by presentations from outside experts. The survey includes emerging copyright, trademark, trade secret and criminal law issues in the U.S. and other jurisdictions (especially the European Union), and the applicability of key treaties. In the face of differing cultural and social norms, the course will also focus on domestic and international regulation of the Internet, privacy, speech and content regulation, and social media. Standard decile grading.

International Negotiation (3 credits)

The course will include specific materials and skill-building exercises on cross-cultural aspects of the bargaining process. Participants may include lawyers from other nations and upper class American JD students. Standard decile grading.
