previous edition

The Digital Legal Talks kick-off conference took place on 2 December 2020. We looked back at the first year of the Digital Legal Studies research collaboration, with researchers from the 4 partner universities presenting their projects and sharing perspectives and approaches across different academic disciplines. We had keynote speeches by Julie Cohen and Frank Pasquale, two breakout rounds with lots of interactive presentation and PLSC-style discussion sessions, and a closing discussion panel where sparks flew on the topic of technology in relation to law and justice.
