This course will take a special look at law and technology as it pertains to the intersection of cybersecurity, cybercrime, privacy, blockchain and cryptocurrencies. These seemingly diverse topics have a natural convergence with respect to the new wave practice of law. For example, we have recently seen many malware attacks and hacks into large law firms, which have forced these firms to pay Bitcoin (cryptocurrency) ransoms to rescue their data. A recent hacking incident involved Chinese inside traders who broke into two of the most famous law firms, compromising confidential information about Wall Street banks and Fortune 500 companies in matters including lawsuits and multibillion-dollar merger negotiations.
