CFP: Technology, Social Media & Law

Laws (an international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal) invites submissions for a special issue on Technology, Social Media and Law. Manuscripts are due by April 30, 2014. The issue

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:

  • cyberbullying
  • online harassment
  • sexting
  • online privacy and surveillance
  • social media in the courtroom
  • online dispute resolution
  • e-discovery
  • courtroom technologies
  • social media, legal practice and professionalism

The guest editor is Prof. Jane Bailey, University of Ottawa.
