This course is designed to inform candidates of existing and emerging issues involving the intersection of law and technology. The course presents, asynchronously, a series of interviews with judges, lawyers and specialists focusing on a particular use of technology in the practice of law including litigation, legal administration and legal issues relating to discovery.  After reviewing the prepared sessions, students will use on-line meeting tools to discuss the issues covered in the interviews and research concepts and ideas related to the particular topic.

An overview of anti-money laundering strategies aimed at attacking criminals through their financial activities and using financial trails to identify the various components of criminal networks will be provided.

Most Internet infrastructure is privately owned and operated. These systems are under constant attack from hackers, organized criminal groups, terrorists and other threats.
