Expertise description

The L.R. Wilson Chair in Information Technology and E-Commerce Law studies how changes in the law and other norms can facilitate interactions in cyberspace. It seeks to better understand how existing laws and other standards of conduct adapt to and develop updated strategies to ensure the proper functioning of e-commerce activities and other online exchanges.

The mission of the Chair is to reinforce and consolidate its research capacities in the field of information technology and e-commerce law.

The Chair’s objectives are to:

  • Increase knowledge and understanding of factors that play a role in developing and declaring rules of conduct in cyberspace
  • Increase knowledge of legal rules implemented by individual States and by other bodies that develop rules of conduct
  • Increase expertise in contracts, intellectual property, human rights, and conflict prevention/resolution in virtual environments
  • Ensure a better understanding of the legal framework for e-commerce transactions and other online exchanges
  • Study the models for rules of conduct that are emerging from commercial practices and e-commerce transactions, and compare these practices in order to identify trends that may influence the development of winning strategies for the regulation of interactions in cyberspace

Contribute to the implementation of unique tools, such as mediation services or online arbitration, that have been adapted to the dynamics of cyberspace
