There probably isn't another crime as international as cybercrime, potentially touching many jurisdictions in the process. This course will explore those international issues, along with law enforcement and judicial responses. We will focus on case studies from Canada, UK and the USA. The course will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, and be international in nature, with students from the University of Strathclyde (Scotland) joining the class, along with professors from both universities, and guest speakers. This way the class can explore issues from two completely different perspectives. Due to the involvement from foreign students, the class schedule has to be compressed into a week of intensive class time.
