IT Law Clinic at UCC

The IT Law Clinic at University College Cork is now up and running.

At the clinic, law postgraduate students provide information to startups on issues of copyright law, data protection, electronic commerce law and web domain names.

The development of the IT Law Clinic builds on UCC’s membership of iLINC, the EU network of ICT Law Incubators (see www.ilincnetwork.eu).


The academic staff are Dr Darius Whelan and Professor Maeve McDonagh.

No fee will be charged for the provision of information.

Startups who wish to seek information on these issues should email d.whelan@ucc.ie.

Requests for information must be submitted in writing only; there is no telephone or interview service. Requests will be admitted on the following basis:

• The clinic deals with issues of copyright law, web domain names, electronic commerce law and data protection law;
• The clinic will not provide information on employment law or company law;
• The clinic will not provide information if litigation has commenced;
• A query will not be admitted if it is unduly complex;
• The startup must have a low annual turnover, normally a maximum of €100,000 p.a.;
• The clinic can normally only deal with queries during semester 1 of the academic year, i.e. September to November;
• If the clinic has sufficient queries for its workload, it cannot take further queries.

Information will be provided in consultation with one of our collaborating solicitors’ firms – McCullagh Wall, Ronan Daly Jermyn and O’Dowd Solicitors. Responses to queries will be provided in a timescale of approximately 4 to 5 weeks. Terms and conditions, notified to the startup, will apply to the information provided.

Copyright Law for Digital Teaching and Learning event

We held an event on Copyright Law for Digital Teaching and Learning in May 2014 and here is a brief report:

Funded by:
National Forum for Enhancement of Teaching and Learning - www.teachingandlearning.ie.

Theme:  Teaching for transitions - assisting learners in the transition from conventional learning to blended learning or e-learning

Date:  15 May 2014

Link to recording:  http://bit.ly/CDTL-15

Link to slides: http://www.slideshare.net/dariuswirl/presentations

Link to Storify: https://storify.com/dariuswirl/copyright-law-for-digital-teaching-and-learning-ma

Hashtag: #copyrightdtl   -  https://twitter.com/hashtag/CopyrightDTL

Pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/dariusw/sets/72157644862628692

Blog Post:  http://irishlawblog.blogspot.ie/2015/07/copyright-law-for-digital-teaching-and.html

Speakers:

Dr Louise Crowley, School of Law, University College Cork
Mr Jason Miles-Campbell, Manager, JiscLegal, Glasgow
Dr Eoin O'Dell, School of Law, Trinity College Dublin
Dr Darius Whelan, School of Law, University College Cork

Key insights from the day:

In online learning materials, it is better from a copyright law perspective to direct users to find the material themselves rather than providing a copy to them
The current educational exceptions regarding copyright are very narrow
The Copyright Review Committee has made important proposals to update the law, but these have not been implemented
Staff should familiarise themselves with the requirements of the Irish Copyright Licensing Agency (ICLA) licence.
It can be valuable for an institution to have one team or central unit dealing with copyright
If using images licensed under Creative Commons, it is important to always use proper attribution

Key contributions from the seminar to the broader Forum outlined theme: 

The seminar advised participants how to create learning materials (for blended and online modules) which comply with Irish copyright law and create assessment tools which comply with copyright law. It developed awareness of developments such as Creative Commons, Open Educational Resources and open source software.  It assisted participants to communicate relevant requirements of copyright law to learners who take part in modules.  Knowledge of these topics will enhance the abilities of participants to provide online or blended courses and enable learners to transition from conventional learning to e-learning.

IT Law Clinic at University College Cork

From September 2015, the School of Law at University College Cork will open an IT Law Clinic.

UCC law students will provide information to businesses in the IT sector on issues such as copyright law, web domain names, electronic commerce law and data protection law. 

Clinic activities will include training on provision of legal information, meetings with IT businesses, guest seminars and engagement in proposals for law reform.

The development of the IT law Clinic builds on UCC’s membership of iLINC, the EU network of ICT Law Incubators (see www.ilincnetwork.eu).

For more information on Intellectual Property and E Law at UCC see www.ucc.ie/law/lawonline/elaw/.

The IT Law Clinic module will be a 5-credit semester 1 LLM module (LW6612).  Students will be admitted  by means of application form and interview. 

For more information contact Dr Darius Whelan (d.whelan@ucc.ie) and Professor Maeve McDonagh (m.mcdonagh@ucc.ie)
