About the seminar
The study of how law interacts with rapidly changing technology is more important than ever. Science and technology have had a significant impact on the development of human civilization and have given us new perspectives on the world in which we live. They were crucial in transforming India and the rest of the world into a modern, industrialized society. Intellectual property rights, cyber law, labor laws, and commercial law have all been influenced by technology, making it one of the most important things of our time.
Who is it for
This seminar strives to invite views from a cross-section of stakeholders on technology-related legal issues while learning from the tangle of purported conclusions reached in the recent past by courts, regulators, technocrats and commentators on these issues, and produce testable theories and suggestions in the field of technology and its legal aspects. The main motto is to broaden the awareness of the interdependence of law, science and technology to scholars, researchers, students and even the popular masses.
