LAW 276P - e-Commerce Practicum.


The practicum in E-Commercial Law will explore one of the law’s fastest-expanding fields. The video game industry’s budget has long surpassed that of Hollywood. Social networks and online marketplaces are the internet success stories of this decade. Yet most established lawyers know little or nothing about how to advise clients on increasingly important e-commercial issues. This practicum will focus on the practical knowledge lawyers must have to succeed in both e-commerce transactions and e-commercial litigation. The practicum covers arange of topics from core commercial law applied to e-commerce (internet sales and securing financing for internet startups), to currently evolving legal issues, including drafting End User License Agreements for video games and social networking sites, drafting electronic sales agreements, and exploring the novel legal issues raised by the growing commerce of online marketplaces and virtual worlds. The course will cover both transactional and litigation skills, and will involve advising a hypothetical client first in the structuring of an e-commercial enterprise, and then progressing to role-played litigation scenarios based on the students’ transactional work.Three hours.Sereff
