Welcome From The Chair



Cyberlawyers, Please dig back through your email and review the Cyberspace Law Themed Business Law Today issues with articles on the law of Data Privacy in China, of self-driving cars, of biometrics in U.S. states, of cybersecurity standards, of cyber data diligence in mergers, of the right to be forgotten and of collecting consumer voices. Plus so much more.

In addition, every Business Law Today edition for the rest of the year will have a “Cyberlaw Corner” with at least one article submitted by our Committee. So look for them and read them all. Write one if you like. We may need some more articles by the end of the year.

Winter Working Meeting 2017 will be at the U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego, so come to sunny San Diego this winter with us, where (micro) chips and (electronic) games are made, as we discuss the hottest topics in Cyber Law. Boston September 8-10 for the Business Law Section Annual Meeting will be fun too, and our committee will be sponsoring a number of CLE panels to go with the committee, subcommittee and task for meetings. Watch this space as we fill in the details in upcoming newsletters.
