Our Mini-Theme: Cyber-Crime, -Cars, and -Coins: Hot Topics in Cyberlaw

The Cyberspace Law Committee (CLC) is getting ready yet again for its annual Cyberspace Law Institute and Winter Working Meeting. This year, we will meet January 30–February 1, 2014, at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver, Colorado, where we will have an opportunity to meet with some of the many cyberlawyers and technology professionals in the Denver–Boulder area. This vibrant technology community, once noted for its roots in the data storage and telecommunications industry, now encompassing innovators, entrepreneurs, and lawyers involved in many areas, is one of the regions where lawyers and business leaders are confronting rapidly evolving cyberlaw issues every day. With this mini-theme, we offer a series of articles on a variety of rapidly-evolving cyberlaw topics, which we will explore further at the January conference as part of our cyberlaw agenda. The range and depth of CLC’s membership is reflected in the topics covered in this mini-theme, which was curated by Professor Sarah Jane Hughes.

Inside Business Law

Late October and early November saw three great annual Committee meetings, which bear review. The LLCs, Partnerships and Unincorporated Entities Committee held the 2013 LLC Institute, featuring a keynote speech by Hon. Myron T. Steele, Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, addressing the “Growing Importance of Alternative Entities as Compared to Corporate Structures.” The Business Bankruptcy Committee held its 2013 Annual Meeting, featuring a smorgasbord of CLE programs and in-person working committee meetings. Finally, the Banking Law Committee held its annual meeting, presenting numerous panels that provided a multifaceted view of current trends and issues in banking law, including a panel discussion among the general counsel of the FRB, FDIC, OCC, and CFPB.
