George Washington University Law School Launches New Cybersecurity Initiative

The school, which offers a National Security LL.M., set to expand its research in cybersecurity

George Washington University Law School has launched a new Cybersecurity Law Initiative.

The new center's director is Orin Kerr, author of a popular casebook and a thought leader in the cybersecurity law space.

The new initiative will offer a lecture series—open to the public—on the topics of cybersecurity law and technology.

In the longer term, according to a blog post by Kerr, the center may put on conferences and publish relevant research. It may also help develop an LL.M. specialization in Cybersecurity.

As laws around cybersecurity continue to evolve, the topic is increasingly becoming important for some law schools. Last year, the University of Maryland announced that it was adding an LL.M. specialization in Cybersecurity, which covers a variety of topics, from foreign cyber crime to counterterrorism. Loyola Law School in Los Angeles also offers an LL.M. specialization in Cybersecurity and Data Privacy.

GW Law currently offers an LL.M. in National Security and US Foreign Relations Law, which includes a course on Cybersecurity Law.
