Over the next few weeks, students from my International Telecommunications Law class will be, as part of their assignments, working on posts that will be published here at Res Communis. This exercise is intended to help the students develop their research ideas for the class. The class is being taught in a short summer session, and by writing blog posts students will be able to engage in the research and writing process early, and have the opportunity to explore their ideas and engage with their research more fully before turning in their final paper. Topics that they will be addressing include cyberwar, telecommunications and disaster response, paper satellites, and cybercrime among others. Be on the look out for posts from this batch of soon to be lawyers.
