All of us here at Cyberlaw Central are gearing up for a very busy Spring Meeting in my hometown, Los Angeles. In between quick jaunts to the beach and visits with the family, I expect to be super busy with a full plate of Cyberspace and Business Law programming and meetings. Don't forget that we will have a full Committee Meeting on Thursday morning, April 10 at 9:00 a.m. We will also be holding individual subcommittee and task force meetings throughout the day Thursday and into Friday, and we are offering very current and compelling CLE programming: "A Year after the Executive Order on Cybersecurity: Advising Boards on Cybersecurity Responsibilities" on Friday at 8:00, "Calling all Toasters: Risk Management for the Internet of Things" on Friday at 10:30, and "Public Policy Enforcement through Payment Systems: Inspired Oversight or Misguided Intervention" on Saturday at 10:30.
PLUS, THIS JUST IN: We are excited to be hosting a joint committee dinner with the Corporate Counsel Committee, the IP Committee, and the Health Law Committee. It will be Thursday, April 10 at 7:00 PM at Park's Korean Barbecue in LA's Koreatown, which is just a little bit west of downtown LA. Come to what is sure to be the most festive of committee dinners - and quite a steal at ticket prices under $50 - and get a taste of the world's biggest Korean neighborhood outside of Korea!

Survey of the Law of Cyberspace
Every year, the Cyberspace Committee is proud to produce its Survey of Developments in Cyberspace Law, published in the Section's journal The Business Lawyer. The efforts of over a dozen authors, editors, and law student proofreaders and cite checkers make this Survey a high-quality publication that the committee is pleased to feature.
The annual survey is a great way to contribute to the work of the Committee as well as to showcase your expertise. The Business Lawyer is the premier business law journal in the country, circulating to more than 60,000 readers. Even if you do not attend many in-person meetings, you can still volunteer to write.
The Survey format involves short articles – typically no more than 12 double-spaced pages – covering important case law, legislation, and administrative rulings. We encourage single-author pieces rather than collective works; you must receive advance approval for a multi-author piece. Authors must be attorneys. Student authorship is not allowed, though credit may be given for those who assist you. Law review format is required. (Dust off your Bluebook – footnotes and pinpoint citations are essential!)
New and returning authors are welcome. If you are interested in contributing, please contact Kristine Dorrain. We are looking for firm commitments by May 1 as the deadlines for submission will begin May 19th. Deadlines will be firm.
