Working Group on Electronic Contracting Practices

If you are coming to the Chicago ABA Annual Meeting, please join us at the Cyberspace Committee's Working Group on Electronic Contracting Practices, which is part of the Electronic Commerce Subcommittee.

The Working Group will meet in our Sunday, August 7th, from 3:30 to 4:30 a.m. in the Windsor Room (Westin Michigan Avenue, 2nd Floor).

Our successful Spring meeting program on modifications of electronic form agreements will become an article for the Business Lawyer. Join us to discuss our progress on the article. We will also have a number of new projects under consideration, including analyzing the types of provisions needed for nonpublic or private suite websites, offering some e-contract assistance to the model website committee, looking at the enforceability and operability of email disclaimers, and discussing whether and how bots might be bound by website terms of use. Finally, we will discuss a recent Massachusetts appellate case involving the refusal to enforce a forum selection clause in a cruise ticket. Please join us.

If you cannot join us in person, we have set up a dial in number for our meeting - contact Chris or Kathy below or post a comment to the blog to get the details.

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago! Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions!

Co-chairs: Kathy Porter (kporter@rc.com) and Chris Kunz (CKunz@WMitchell.edu)
