A new issue of Law, Technology and Humans has been published.
Law, Technology and Humans is an international, open access, peer-reviewed journal publishing original, innovative research concerned with the human and humanity of law and technology. Supported by the School of Law, the Journal was launched in late 2019 and is one of five QUT-supported scholarly journals.
The new issue is in two parts. The first is a collection of papers from a virtual symposium in mid-2020: Privacy and Pandemics, which illustrate a number of ways that the realities of a global pandemic challenged different perspectives on privacy protection and the appropriate relationship with other rights and responsibilities. Included is an article from QUT Law academics Mark Burdon and Brydon Wang who critically examine the Australian Government’s initial implementation of the COVIDSafe app.
The second part of this issue is a selection of general articles on a variety of topics including the protection of data interests in the age of AI, the legal landscape of reproduction bio commodities in Europe, online access to legal services in India, technology as a new theology and various explorations of LawTech.
The issue is also complimented with the inclusion of several book reviews including Michael D White and Aili Malm’s Cops, Cameras, and Crisis: The Potential and the Perils of Police Body-Worn Cameras.
Submissions are now being accepted for Volume 3, Issue 2 to be published in November 2021.
