Net Neutrality



Net Neutrality: Past, Present and Future This course will use current litigation over the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) adoption and repeal of so-called "network neutrality" rules as a jumping off point for examining how government adapts to technologies, which evolve more quickly than Congress can legislation. It will explore contemporary legal and policy debates on media and telecommunications policy and judicial review of agency action. It will place particular focus on the role of independent regulatory commissions, bodies that exercise quasi-judicial, quasi-legislative and quasi-executive functions.
