We are delighted to announce that the next BILETA (British & Irish Law, Education and Technology Association) conference will take place in Manchester on 11th & 12th April 2011 at MMU School of Law.
This year’s conference will focus on the balance between supporting the positive development of technology for the global good, whilst minimising potential dangers and threats.
The conference aims to cover a range of key issues including:
Internet censorship and surveillance
Hacking and viruses
Regulation of ISPs
E-learning and legal education
And a range of other themes.
•Professor Paul Maharg, Professor of Legal Education, Northumbria University
•Iain G Mitchell QC, UK representative on the Information Technology Committee of the Bars and Law Societies of Europe
The response to the initial BILETA Call For Papers has been excellent. In order to allow contributions from the widest possible sphere of interest, a decision has been taken to extend the Call For Papers until the 25th of February. Position papers, abstracts and poster submissions are all welcome.
Postgraduate competition: A prize of £100 will be awarded to the best postgraduate conference paper. To be eligible for the contest a position paper of approximately 3000 words needs to be submitted by the 26th of March.
