Cyberlaw skills projects

Note on projects.

Each project is 1/3 of your final course score. The other 1/3 is from class participation, which includes attendance, punctuality, leadership, discussion, and service as a moderator or panelist.


Project 1: Attorney self-branding.

Brand yourself online in preparation for practice. Develop your professional online profile using tools such as Twitter, LinkedIn, Instragram and more. This project will continue through the semester. Click here for details.

Note: I will upload your own personal copy of the project 1 report template for you to edit. The template link provided above is for you to see but not to edit.

Comment on hot online topics. You will draft a blog posting for a class blog on internet law issues. Click here for details.
