About Law and Tech Times
Law & Tech Times is a student-run, blind peer-reviewed newsletter/blog, working under CIIPR, and based at Rajiv Gandhi National University of Law, Punjab. It is the flagship initiative in the field of technology law, founded with the objective of facilitating research in the field of technological advancements and its interface with law.
The main objective of the law is to catch-up with the advancing innovations in the field of technology and the laws that govern them. Our team seeks to study this relationship of how the law interacts with science and technology. Within such a short while of its existence, the team has begun publishing its newsletters. The team’s offerings related to science and technology are grouped into various attractive clusters of study like the Intellectual Property Rights law, Health laws, Internet law, and Cyberspace regulations, Technological and Civil liberties, etc. Our team is dedicated to the aim of exploring these fields in detail.
Innovation in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) as well as other forms of digitalized products and services is moving at much faster rate for legal institutions to regulate the pace of the technological advancement. Technologies like virtual reality, artificial intelligence or blockchain is bringing a paradigmatic shift in the physical world. There exists much scope for law and policy makers to structuralize the ICTs interventions in our lives. Hence, the Blog Series aims to facilitate discussions related to the legal and regulatory policy considerations for technological advancements and much needed legal framework around them.
Law and Tech Times invites blogs on a rolling basis on contemporary issues related to Technology Laws. Under exceptional circumstances, the editorial board may accept pieces that revisit important issues that may have gone dormant, if they provide a unique and novel perspective or have renewed scope for discussion.
