Teaching in rapidly changing areas of law can lead to disjointed syllabi, and soon-forgotten materials. This article outlines a series of ten themes for teaching 'cyberlaw' in an attempt to overcome such problems. The themes cover jurisdiction, agency, payments, risk transfer, security, taxation, crime, history, privacy and IP. These can be adapted or changed to suit the needs and preferences of individual teachers. The article discusses each theme in the light of recent developments in the law. A set of advanced sub-topics is also proposed for the future.
