Diploma in E-commerce Law
This Diploma program has been developed in response to a strong worldwide demand for information on e-commerce law and its related fields. Additionally, the borderless nature of e-commerce requires that this knowledge be accessible by anyone no matter where he or she may be located. Thus, utilizing the Global Legal Network of e-commerce law attorneys, and its well-developed educational platform, the Diploma on E-Commerce Law is presented as a distinctive online distance learning course.
Diploma in E-Commerce Law is offered online using the most advanced e-blackboard technology, and its content is authored by expert attorneys from many countries. Students may access material online at any time and study at their preferred time.
Upon completing this course, students will acquire an in-depth knowledge of e-commerce and its related fields. For instance, E-commerce professionals and entrepreneurs need to be aware of online jurisdiction rules that apply to local and cross border transactions. These rules determine whether a corporation or online vendor can be hailed by certain state or foreign courts; this is the so-called Personal Jurisdiction concept. E-commerce presents a challenge to the traditional concept of personal jurisdiction. This Diploma program analyses how conventional concepts on personal jurisdiction, like presence and minimum contacts, may be applied to the online commerce world. Further, the course introduces the reader to the notion of forum selection and choice of law clauses in e-contracts.
Additionally, in this Diploma course students will learn about the international organizations that are involved in regulating and directing the development of e-commerce. Jurisdictional rules from an international perspective will also be covered, as well as practical considerations of limiting the possibility of being called in front of a foreign court.
Also, this Diploma course introduces the reader to the main and more controversial aspects of e-commerce. For instance, the reader will understand the pros and cons of the notion on Internet Governance. Additionally, a great explanation of intellectual property rights on the cyberspace, privacy rights, e-taxation policies, online contracting rules, cybercrime security, cyber-speech rights, and global online commercial rules are explained in this Diploma program.
To complement this extraordinary e-commerce information, the course will educate on central e-commerce jargon and common antagonisms. Entities such as the CERN, HCOPIL, ICC, ISO, OECD, UNCITRAL, WIPO, and WTO should be as familiar as B2B and COD to the Internet Attorney and the entrepreneur.
Attorneys and other professionals in countries like United Kingdom, United States, Greece, India, Italy, China, Argentina, Barbados, among others, have already taken the Diploma on E-commerce Law.
