About the National Seminar Seminar

The law and technology field is paramount as it shapes various aspects of our society, economy, governance, and individual rights.

The Seminar aims to act as a catalyst for discussions on the key aspects of technology & law, its future trends, and impacts. It also seeks to gather inputs from a diverse range of stakeholders on legal issues relating to technology as well as to get a broader understanding of the developments of legal issues in this field in the past that will help generate a more holistic viewpoint about the existing concerns in the field of law and technology.

Who is it for

This Seminar is an endeavor 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. The main motto is to widen awareness about the interconnectedness of law, science, and technology among academicians, research scholars, students, and even to the common masses.
