Education continues to play an important role in cyberspace.The cornerstone of any society is the educated citizens, purely because they can make informed decisions about situations. Education whether primary,  secondary or even tertiary whatever form it takes, places value on the ability of the individual to think independently as well as apply logical analysis in the application.

Tertiary education is one which a lot of people seek to achieve in their lives. However, not everyone is able to attain that height for various reasons from lack of finances, to inadequate provision of the needed infrastructure for the achievement of this goal. In a 2012 statistics provided by the OECD published by the Wall Street Journal, these figures state the picture of the importance of education in various countries and the numbers who are able to achieve the much-needed education ; 37.5% in  Chile 33.7% in Singapore 16.5% in Malaysia 14.6% in Brazil 4.3% in Nigeria attain tertiary education. The statistics still shows that countries with  the most highly educated citizens such as the US, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Finland, Norway, Israel, UK, New Zealand and Australia are the wealthiest and therefore in a position to dictate how cyberspace is governed and used. The same can be said for countries grappling with a crawling progress in education and how cyberspace law can impact daily lives.

In our digital world, we are all in one way or another affected by cyber law. Therefore, cyber crime cases are on the increase such as online banking frauds, online share trading, source code theft, tax evasion, virus attacks, denial of service, hacking, email hijacking, phishing attacks, cyber sabotage and credit card fraud are common occurrences. With the advancement in technology has been  the popularity of Digital Signatures and E-contracts, which are increasingly replacing the conventional methods of conducting business.

Cyber law, having emerged from the internet has grown unplanned and largely unregulated. No one could have envisaged the far-reaching consequences and merits of cyberspace. The internet is growing in astonishing levels, and has become the preferred environment of the world for the conduct of every activity known to man. With Cyberspace ‘s growth has resulted  the need for the regulation of cyber law. The youths are the ones positioned to grasp and embrace cyber related matters with no difficulties. Cyberlaw is simply the regulation of the cyberspace, one which governments and individuals are keen to see implemented.

Why are the youths able to understand cyberspace related matters with ease? The answer purely lies with the ease with which the youths are able to identify , experiment and explore. Also because the youths are the ones known to come up with lots of questions.  Most of these difficult questions can virtually be found in cyberspace. Issues the youths face such as frustrations have been known to be vented online, either on Facebook or twitter etc. In our society, many youths are known to hang out online; usually in email groups, chat rooms, message boards and through these various mediums experiences have been known to be shared and conflicts resolved.According to recent studies, youths tend to know quite a significant knowledge on global issues, though not experts however their knowledge has been the cyberspace a lot tolerant to people for diverse backgrounds.

Can the youths change the landscape of cyberspace through cyber law, since most are conversant with the workings of cyberspace?
