'OUT OF THE BOX'
19th Annual BILETA Conference
University of Durham
25th & 26th March 2004
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 19th Annual BILETA Conference is being hosted by the Institute for Commercial and Corporate Law at the University of Durham. "Out of the Box", the conference theme, offers many resonances. It invokes issues concerning the way in which recent technologies have moved beyond the traditional threshold of the computer itself, the exponential growth of the digital environment, and the social, legal and political strategies for addressing the various Pandorian horrors (and gifts) such developments promise to release. More importantly the conference challenges lawyers, educationalists and policy makers to consider creatively the way in which we might best navigate these unsettled and unsettling times. It's time to start thinking out of the box.
As ever, the conference will consider both the regulation of information technology and its use in the legal environment as a facilitating and/or educational tool. Streams will include:
- Internet governance
- online content regulation
- intellectual property
- electronic commerce
- access to legal information online
- ICT and legal education
- IT and legal practice
Proposals for papers are welcome in these and other related areas.
Submissions should be in the form of short abstract (no more than 500 words) outlining the main thrust and conclusions of the paper. The abstracts for those papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be provided in the conference packs. Authors will also be requested to submit the text of the completed papers following the conference for publication on the BILETA website. Please note that only papers that are presented at the conference in person by at least one of the authors will be published online.
Proposals for papers (in MS Word) should be submitted to: BILETA2004@durham.ac.uk.
The deadline for submissions is 31st December 2003. Successful applications will be notified during January 2004.
