235B Counseling and Legal Strategy in the Digital Age (2)

Seminar - 2 hours. This course explores the complex challenges that entrepreneurs, businesses, and other organizations face when trying to address legal issues relating to technology. The seminar's approach is both practical and multidisciplinary, and it encourages students to explore the roles of a wide range of stakeholders (including lawyers, policy advocates and policymakers, businesspersons, and technologists) in developing legal and business strategies.

The course draws on a rich set of case studies based on recent legal controversies (including pre-litigation correspondence, pleadings, briefs, and other litigation materials). Students also review, analyze, and critique transactional documents and other legal materials (including contracts and website terms of use and privacy policies), with an eye toward assessing legal and PR risks and protecting client's interests.
