Program Description:
Description
The main focus of Cyber Law course is to get students acquainted with 'ICT in the arena of Law' and would denote the entire interaction between law and cyberspace. The course would be divided into several themes covering introductory concepts of cyberspace, digital rights and responsibilities, freedom of expression online, media freedom and right to information, misinformation and disinformation, infodemic, privacy and data protection, legal aspects of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, cybercrimes and cyber security, transparency of mass-surveillance, jurisdictional issues over internet, e-governance, tech contracts, intellectual property rights over internet and global internet governance.

The course would also consider the possibilities for the use of ICT by lawyers and the impact of ICT on legal practice. Attempts would be made to briefly introduce students to the issues behind the concept of cyber law- a cross disciplinary field that addresses the application of information technologies in the practice of law. It is preferable that students should have basic ideas on Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Law of Evidence, before taking this course.
