Teaching Considerations

  1. SUGGESTED SCHEDULE:
  2. The following sample module plan is based on the offering of three to nine hours of lectures with outside lab time and some homework.

    1. The Underlying problem....................1 - 2 hours
    2. Laws as tools for computer security...1 - 3 hours
    3. Laws as legal options for control........1 - 4 hours
    4. As an alternative a one hour lecture could be presented discussing only topic II.

  3. CASE STUDIES/EXAMPLES:
  4. The Computer/Law Journal, which can be found in most major libraries is a very good source of examples and case studies.

  5. HOMEWORK AND LAB EXERCISES:
  6. Ask students to complete a brief two or three page summary of current articles related to computer law. Trade publications such a Datamation and Computer World often have articles that can be used as cases. Ask the advanced student to review court cases.
