Course Description

This course is an opportunity for students to acquire solid knowledge addressing current legal issues related to new technologies, with a first approach of the French legal system (especially the criminal system). Designed for non-lawyers (students with legal background are also welcome), this course will particularly focus on cyber-crime and data protection, which are both of increasing importance for senior executives, in both the public and the private sector. The first part of the course will focus on acquiring the fundamental legal concepts – always using current examples – necessary for understanding key legal issues. Students will then be offered the necessary background to discuss matters relating to new technologies with a specific focus on civil liberties, as well as economic issues. The topics covered will include: how to protect individuals from the collection of data by the State, companies or their employer? How should civil liberties on the Internet be protected in a context of terror? What are the legal means available to companies to protect their business? How should the legal system evolve in a context of a technology environment in constant progress?
