Youth & The Law in the Digital Age

Online Resources for Teachers


The pace of technological change in the digital realm is constant and accelerating. The legal system is facing many challenges in keeping up with addressing the legal implications of this change.

This module is intended to help teachers facilitate discussion and exploration of law-related issues that pertain to current and emerging digital technologies, such as mobile devices and the Internet. The aim is to develop awareness and critical thinking among students about the technologies they use every day, and the law’s impact on them. Our intent is to provide useful and current information on these topics, as well as provide an ongoing look at the news via our site’s blog.

The module will be broken up into individual units, to be published as they are completed. Links to the individual units are below.

  • Cyberbullying
  • Sexting (development paused due to lack of funding)
