Course objectives
At the end of the course students should be able to
- understand and explain the interrelationships between law and the digital age;
- work with information gathered from legal scholarship alongside various cultural representations relevant to it, such as films, documentaries, and fiction;
- make decisions and deductions, based on the acquired knowledge, in regard to contemporaneous issues relevant to the practices of law in digital age.
For example: Should Hi-Tech means for creating visibility (such as Computer Generated Evidence) be freely admitted in courts of law? Can virtual courts replace conventional courts? Do we still need the one-time legal performance? And most of all - Can law still represent justice? The course will improve the ability to address such issues, by enabling students to understand a multidisciplinary perspective, and interpret “law and” scholarship.
