Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting, January 23-24, 2015
Whether or not you join us in Chicago, do plan to attend the Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting in Charlotte, NC on January 23-24, 2015. Planning is now underway for the two-day meeting, which will include 4-5 hours of CLE, roundtables, and working sessions. We still have a few spots for new CLE sessions, so please send in your ideas. Here are a few particulars:
1. CLE sessions will be 30 or 40 minutes long; this means no more than 1-2 presenters per program.
2. This is really CLE, so written materials, etc. will be required: the deadline is tentatively December 1, 2014. Scholarly papers are welcomed, but not necessary; detailed PowerPoints are acceptable.
3. The audience will be pretty acquainted with the basic knowledge; so in-depth, concentrated (geeky) sessions are welcomed. We are interested in high-level, new, and cutting-edge cyberlaw topics. If you have a more "mainstream" topic, that's great; submit it too.
4. If you're new to the committee, this is a great way for us to get to know you and your expertise!
Please submit a paragraph description of your proposed topic to incoming committee chair Ted Claypoole (email@example.com) by September 26, 2014.
Jonathan T. Rubens
Outgoing Chair, Cyberspace Law Committee, Business Law Section
