About 2nd National Conference on Law and Technology

The twenty-first century is marked by considerable progress in technology. The earlier unimaginable frontiers now seem plausible and practical. Its impact and reach have become all pervasive and inevitable that today there is hardly any field which remains untouched by technological development. The imperativeness of technology is such that it affects us in multiple ways – be it communication, trade, lifestyle, security, privacy, working style, education etc. Newer opportunities are being created owing to the far-reaching impact of technology – both nationally and internationally. On the one hand, these technological advancements aid mankind in making life simpler and more convenient but on the hand, these developments are not free from contentious aspects. Every new technological progress brings with it newer challenges for mankind.

Digital technology which has spread its wings into every arena of human life – from shopping to booking healthcare appointments to education to wellness etc; encompasses within its realm several issues which have the potential to jeopardise human life. The threats posed by the cyber world in the form of cyber crimes, cyber security, and data protection, have proved to be a great challenge for society.

Similarly, the advantages of artificial intelligence in making life tasks swift, efficient and up-to-date cannot be undermined. However, they too are surrounded by several complexities. The threat of loss of jobs, data protection and paucity of regulatory mechanisms are a few issues that become relevant with this modern-day advancement.

These contemporary developments are affecting the field of law in unprecedented ways. Many times, the legal mechanism is unequipped to address these modern-day challenges. It could be due to a lack of regulatory framework in place or the inefficiency of the prevalent mechanism. This calls for a re-thinking of our approach to the set laws and the legal framework vis a vis their inter-relationship with the technology. The conference will be organised in a hybrid mode.


The conference aims to initiate a discussion on some of the key areas which gain relevance when talking about digital technology and the prevalent legal machinery. The Sub-themes of the conferences are as under:

  • Application of Technology in Criminal Justice Administration
  • Artificial Intelligence and related issues
  • Right to Privacy and Data Protection
  • Human Rights Law and Technology
  • IPR and Technology
  • Use of IT in Dispute Resolution
  • Healthcare and Technology
  • Start-ups and Technology
  • Corporate law and Technology
  • Social Media and Information Technology
However, these sub-themes are only illustrative. Any relevant topic connected to the theme can be considered.

Authors of selected papers will be given an opportunity to present their papers at the conference. Joint authorship is permitted, subject to a maximum of two co-authors.
