Volume 5(2) includes articles from the symposium Regulatory Futures and Medical Devices: Where Next for Europe and the United Kingdom?
The symposium in this issue of Law, Technology and Humans (curated by Muireann Quigley, Laura Downey and Joseph Roberts from the University of Birmingham) brings together a range of scholars looking at the broad question of where next for medical devices regulation in the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom (UK). Initially arising out of a workshop held in September 2022, the motivation for the symposium is rooted in the challenges raised by what has been a significant period of change in both the EU and the UK when it comes to medical devices regulation.
Introduction: Regulatory Futures and Medical Devices https://doi.org/10.5204/lthj.3174
General articles include the issue of contract-tracing and the problem of trust: Rachelle Bosua, Damian Clifford and Megan Richardson outline to what extent can difficulties be ascribed to a lack of public trust undermining the technologies’ effectiveness and disputing their legitimacy? Justine Rogers and Anthony Song explore digital marketing in the legal profession, while Armin Alimardani and co-authors discuss big data, behavioural genetics and the risk of future offending.
