Programs and Publications

The Programs and Publications Subcommittee didn't actually meet. However, there are a few substantive things that I wanted to share/ask of the members of the Committee. Please let me know if you have an interest in any of the topics below.

  1. eNewsletter
    The Business Law Section has created a template for the publication of electronic newsletters by the Committees. We are looking for someone who is interested in using the template to create an electronic newsletter for the Cyberspace Law Committee. Because we have so many existing publication venues (the Blogs, the Law Hub), we should be able to easily find content that we can re-purpose. If you're interested, contact McGuire. Here is a sample of the new template formats showing The eNewsletter published by the Consumer Financial Services Committee is a good example of the new format.
  2. Survey of the Law of Cyberspace
    For next year's Survey in The Business Lawyer, we're going to try something a bit different. We're going to identify 4 or 5 subcommittees who will prepare short summaries ("surveys") of the developments in their particular areas. We need one or two authors for each Subcommittee who will take responsibility for preparing the survey pieces.
  3. Publications Board
    Eric Goldman will be replacing me on the Publications Board for the Business Law Section starting Sunday. If you have questions about the process of publishing books by the Section, please see Eric. He doesn't know much yet, but he'll learn quickly.
