Law, Technology and Humans is an international, open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing original, innovative research concerned with the human and humanity of law and technology. Law, Technology and Humans publishes collections of articles in special issues and symposiums, and individual articles.

Committed to the wide and unrestricted dissemination of knowledge Law, Technology and Humans encourages scholarship that reflects on how technology is changing law, regulation and normative conduct and also how law, regulation and normative conduct effects local and global challenges and opportunities from technological change.
