Sessions of the 2000 Global Internet Summit, held March 13 and 14 in the Concert Hall, can be observed by interested faculty members and students, giving them a unique opportunity to learn about the Internet policy issues that will shape the future.

The summit, hosted by the School of Law’s National Center for Technology and Law, focuses on the Internet and the many public policy issues that arise out of its growth, including e-commerce, education, privacy, and taxation. The summit has attracted a stellar group of speakers, including Michael Dell of Dell Computer, Michael Daniels of Network Solutions, Steve Case of America Online, William Schrader of PSINet, and Vint Cerf, one of the fathers of the Internet. Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore and Congressman Tom Bliley are cosponsoring the event, and will also speak.

  • Tickets will be available free of charge at the Concert Hall ticket office on a first-come, first-served basis beginning on March 6.
