This Special Issue of Laws, “Technology, Social Media and Law” focuses on the sometimes complex relationships between technology, social media and law, both in terms of: (i) substantive legal responses to social and cultural issues arising in connection with growing public engagement with technology and social media; and (ii) the procedural impacts and transformative potential of technology on traditional and emerging forms of dispute resolution. Topics might include, but are not limited to:
- online harassment
- online privacy and surveillance
- social media in the courtroom
- online dispute resolution
- courtroom technologies
- social media, legal practice and professionalism
Authors working on articles exploring substantive and/or procedural issues arising in relation to technology, social media and law are encouraged to contribute to this issue. We welcome submissions from multiple jurisdictions and are open to a variety of approaches including: analyses of civil, administrative and criminal case law, evaluations of existing and proposed statutory approaches, and examinations of related social science evidence that could inform development of both substantive and procedural legal approaches to issues arising from technology and social media.
