The current technological revolution is challenging existing regulation while providing new opportunities for legal research and practice. This phenomenon requires fresh perspectives (doctrinal, theoretical, empirical, technical and critical) and provides opportunities for future research, applications and teaching.
This roundtable brings researchers from across the Faculty to discuss their research and lays the ground for an expanded conference in the Fall. It is also timed to coincide with a related workshop on automated text analysis at Pluricourts.
