School of Law, GD Goenka University in collaboration with Cyber Peace Foundation is organising the 3rd International Conference on “Emerging Jurisprudence of Digital Transformation of Law” on 7th - 8th June, 2024, and is inviting submissions exploring the legal, technological and regulatory aspects and services that are emerging in India and abroad.  

Digital transformation has permeated every aspect of society, profoundly altering the way law is practiced, interpreted, and enforced. From the adoption of digital technologies in legal processes to the ethical implications of artificial intelligence and the regulation of emerging technologies, the intersection of law and technology has become increasingly complex and multifaceted.

The "Emerging Jurisprudence of Digital Transformation of Law" embodies the ongoing evolution of legal principles and practices in response to the digital revolution. By exploring the intersection of law and technology across various themes, we aim to deepen our understanding of the challenges and opportunities presented by digital transformation and to shape a legal framework that promotes fairness, accountability, and justice in the digital age.

In the above background, this Conference aims to examine how law and technology intersect and how our legal system must respond to the challenges caused by the effect of technology on the society at large. This conference will act as a platform for professionals, academicians, and students to come together and discuss the interdisciplinary aspects of law and technology and discuss the issues and challenges in this arena.
