Meets: M, T, W, Th, F 1:00pm - 4:15pm in WCC Room 3018
3 classroom credits

The course will provide an introduction and overview to questions of communications and Internet law and policy. The intensive semester will combine several lectures and in-class discussions to provide background and overview of major issues, with intensive, workshop-style group work on policy briefs and in-class presentations. The topics of the policy briefs are selected so that by following their own, and other student's presentations, students will receive an overview of the major topics currently at stake in communications and Internet law and policy, and will also develop an in-depth familiarity with a subset of the issues through intensive high-intensity research, discussion, and presentation.
