Cyberlaw conference

As the internet has become ubiquitous, so has cyberlaw grown in importance and influence in our lives. Not one day goes by without hearing and/or reading of legal issues of e-commerce, cloud computing, data protection, intellectual property rights, cybercrime, to name a few. At national level, Governments multiply regulations of the use of internet and new technologies. But increasingly the international dimension of cyberlaw cannot be ignored.

The Cyberlaw Section at the British Society of Legal Studies (SLS) has issued a call for original research papers to be presented at the 2013 SLS Annual Conference from 3rd to 6th September 2013 at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. The goal of the SLS Cyberlaw Section is to provide a forum where legal scholars and practitioners can gather together to update each other on current developments in cyberlaw and discuss high-quality research relevant to legal issues in the information society. Papers in every discipline of law are welcome.

If you are interested in presenting a paper, please indicate your interest or submit an abstract (within 300 words) to faye.wang@brunel.ac.uk by the 15th March 2013. More information is available at http://cyberlawsection.wordpress.com/2013/02/12/call-for-papers-2013-2/  or http://sections.legalscholars.ac.uk/news_item.cfm?no=361.
