L’Eglise catholique possède un Droit propre : le Droit canonique. Il est composé d’un ensemble de normes qui est destiné à régir son organisation et la vie des fidèles (la composition des tribunaux, la question du mariage, les sacrements…). À la fois incarné et révélé, ce droit soulève de nombreuses questions. Quelles relations entretiennent la société civile et la société ecclésiale ? Comment la justice ecclésiastique est-elle organisée : tribunaux, peines et délits ? Comment ce droit participe t-il à la protection des libertés fondamentales des individus ? Autant de questions auxquelles nous tenterons de répondre dans ce MOOC.

This seven-week course will explore the relationship between law and technology with a strong focus on the law of the United States with some comparisons to laws around the world, especially in Europe. Tech progress is an important source of economic growth and raises broader questions about the human condition, including how culture evolves and who controls that evolution. Technology also matters in countless other ways as it often establishes the framework in which governments interact with their citizens, both in allowing speech and blocking it and in establishing exactly what the boundaries are between private life and the government. And technology itself is powerfully shaped by the laws that apply in areas as diverse as copyright, antitrust, patents, privacy, speech law and the regulation of networks.
