The University of Milan, on behalf of the DIGinLaw consortium (also comprising Josip Juraj Strossmayer, the University of Osijek, the University of Aberdeen, and the University of Zagreb – University Computing Centre (SRCE)), is organising an International Conference on ‘Law in the Age of Modern Technologies’, hosted in Milan on 10 February 2023.
Digitalization strongly affects society, science, and the transfer of knowledge. While taking advantage of modern technologies, the DIGinLaw Project aims to raise awareness of digital demands in higher education and research in law and fosters the creation of digital literacy and digital competence that is needed in the law labour market. The Project aims to create an open and inclusive society of legal knowledge and to open access to the scientific areas dealing with the effects of digitalization on law and legal education.
The Conference is the culmination of scientific research on the digitalization of legal education and the digitalization of law. It provides a venue for the presentation and discussion of scientific research focusing on such and related themes. For these purposes, the Organizing Committee is pleased to invite (i) abstract submissions that address specific aspects of the impact of modern technologies on the law, and (ii) abstracts focusing on the digital transformation processes in the legal domain and welcomes the participation of a prosperous community crossing different disciplines beside law, including computer science and legal informatics.
Abstracts of 250-500 words (max) should specify the main arguments, the structure of the paper, and the methodology. If the proposal is accepted, authors will be expected to deliver a full paper of no more than 15.000 words (footnotes included) by 28 February 2023. Depending on the topics, the selected papers will be published in a peer-reviewed international journal or in a particular volume by an international publisher.
Submission deadline for abstracts: 15 November 2022
Notification of acceptance of abstracts: 25 November 2022
Submission deadline for papers: 28 February 2023
The Conference is organized within the framework of the project ‘Time to Become Digital in Law’ (DIGinLaw), co-funded by Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union. Additional information on the event is available here.
