    Law as Data, Data as Law | Call for Papers

    2024-02-22

    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 https://lthj.qut.edu.au/

    New Issue | Law, Technology and Humans

    2023-11-21

    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. 

    Two books are also reviewed:

    Ariane Ollier-Malaterre (2023) Living with Digital Surveillance in China: Citizens’ Narratives on Technology, Privacy, and Governance.

    Yeslam Al-Saggaf (2022) The Psychology of Phubbing
