LEEDS University Law Faculty has set up the UK's first cyberlaw research unit to examine the unregulated areas of the Internet.
The unit consists of five members of staff and several PhD students, headed by lecturer David Wall who launched the university's first cyberlaw course last year.
Unit staff are currently working on two legal texts on the Internet. They are also hosting a conference on cyberlaw and cybercrime next March on behalf of the British and Irish Legal Technology Association.
Wall said Leeds' law department had had an "overwhelming success" with its cyberlaw course and was currently considering setting up a cyberlaw masters degree.
