[Air-L] The state of Internet Law

Harvard, Stanford, Yale & Columbia are the top law schools in the country.  So my guess is that the area is not being dismissed, but is viewed as cutting edge.  It will take a bit of time before other schools get onboard, but they will--the internet and digital technologies, and the challenges they pose for traditional law aren't going away.

Subject: [Air-L] The state of Internet Law

In the US there are only a handful of law schools teaching Law, Science, and Technology tracks - otherwise known as Internet or Cyber Law. Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, and a few others have such a program or similar thereto.

Most other law schools only offer a class or two in what is a young and vibrant area of law, especially in light of the recent Wikileaks escapade.

Do any of you have any insight into other Law Schools that have, or are planning to have a Law, Science, and Technology Law track within their Law School? (Yes, Im looking for candidate law schools to apply to as well) :-)

Do you think this is an area that is being ignored or dismissed as a legitimate niche?

Please discuss!

One should guard against preaching to young people success in the customary form as the main aim in life. The most important motive for work in school and in life is pleasure in work, pleasure in its result, and the knowledge of the value of the result to the community.
