Communications Law

Spring 2014 Course
Meets: M, T 8:30am - 10:00am in WCC Room B010
3 classroom credits

Rapidly changing computing/communication technologies pose deep challenges to existing regulatory frameworks. This course provides a legal, technological, and policy introduction to these changes and challenges. Although there are no prerequisites for this course, students who have already taken administrative law and/or antitrust law might find that this course both reinforces and applies the concepts introduced in those other courses. Students who have not taken those courses may find this course a helpful way to explore those other subjects. We will cover the regulatory regimes that govern radio, broadcast television, cable television, the telephone system, and Internet access infrastructure. (Grades will be based on class participation and an exam.)
