Law as Data, Data as Law | Call for Papers


Law, Technology and Humans Vol 6(3) 2024

In recent years, there has been rapid change in the capacity of information and communications technology to supplement the skills of lawyers (‘lawtech’). Artificial intelligence (AI) may radically transform legal practice, the work of courts, and legal education. The International Future of Law Association (IFLA) recently convened an international conference to discuss these issues. IFLA now proposes to edit a symposium of Law, Technology and Humans made up of papers from this event and others solicited through a call for papers.

The overarching theme of “Law as Data, Data as Law” will anchor the paper selection and editing processes of this symposium, with a view to providing readers with a holistic understanding of the latest developments in data-driven approaches to law, and expert commentary of its impacts on legal practice, education and systems from researchers in several jurisdictions around the globe.

The symposium will be edited by Dr Rónán Kennedy (University of Galway) and Dr Brian Barry (Trinity College Dublin), in collaboration with the editors of Law, Technology and Humans.

Articles due: 18 July 2024 via

Law, Technology and Humans provides an inclusive and unique forum for exploration of the broader connections, history and emergent future of law and technology through supporting research that takes seriously the human, and humanity of law and technology.

Papers to be considered at any time, please look out for the call for papers for symposiums and workshops.  Submissions should consider the following, in particular research and scholarship that:

  • Challenges and critically examines the promises and perils of emergent technologies
  • Engages with the futures (and pasts) of law, technology and humans
  • Involves critical, philosophical or theoretically informed work on law and technology
  • Uses humanities, social science or other approaches to study law and technology
  • Examines law and technology from non-Western locations and perspectives
  • Locates law and technology in wider concerns with the Anthropocene, climate change or relations with non-humans

Interested contributors are invited to discuss their research and scholarship with the Chief Editor, Professor Kieran Tranter:
