The internet has created enormous changes in a number of areas including our laws. An emerging specialty within law is cyber law. Our legal system has evolved in a physical and visual world, but cyber space is largely invisible and virtual. Past legal decisions or legal precedence has been important in our system and reasoning by analogy has been used extensively. In many cases the laws applied in the physical realm do not translate equally well into cyber space. This workshop will discuss the importance of this area to an MIS/CIS/IT program, legal issues that need to be addressed, and provide a sample syllabus and other resources.
