CfP: Seminar on Law and Technology by RMLNLU, Lucknow [Offline]: Submit by Nov 5

RMLNLU, Lucknow is organizing a Seminar on Law and Technology at its campus, and is inviting submissions through call for papers.


Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University was established by an Act of Govt. of Uttar Pradesh in 2005 and came into being on 4th of January 2006 to meet up the new challenges in the legal field.

About the Seminar

The study of how law interacts with rapidly evolving technology is more important than ever before. Science and technology have had a significant impact on the development of human civilization and have presented us with new perspectives on the world we live in.

It was crucial in changing India and the rest of the globe into a modern, industrialized society. Intellectual Property Rights, Cyber Law, Labour Laws and Trade Law have all been influenced by technology, making it one of the most prominent components in our times today.


This Seminar is an endeavour to invite views from cross-sections of the stakeholders on the legal issues relating to technology while learning from the tangle of the purported conclusions reached in the recent past by courts, regulators, technocrats, and commentators on these issues, and to churn out testable theories and suggestions in the field of technology and its legal aspects.
