There probably isn't another crime as international as cybercrime, potentially touching many jurisdictions in the process. This course will be international in scope, with students from the University of Strathclyde (Scotland) and Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule, Amber-Weiden, Germany joining the class, along with professors from those universities, plus guest speakers. Case studies and reports from Canada, the UK, and the USA will be a main focus for comparative analysis, as will be the international dimensions of cyber-offending, law enforcement and judicial responses. Due to the involvement of foreign students and professors, the class schedule will be compressed into one week of intensive class time in-field, followed by two days of course-related field trips. 

This Field School consists of 3 SFU Units.
