New Issue | Law, Technology and Humans

A new issue of Law, Technology and Humans has been published.

Volume 5(1) includes articles from the symposium Condition Critical.

This symposium explores the heuristic and political potential of system breakdowns from empirical, theoretical and policy perspectives. This range of perspectives is also informed by the locations of the authors and the sites of their research, which include Australia, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United Kingdom. The diversity of the authors’ academic and professional backgrounds (i.e., law, political science, clinical psychology, history and sociology) is reflected in their analyses, adding more range and critical density to the contexts under examination.

Introduction to Condition Critical

The introduction to the ‘Condition Critical’ symposium explains the background to the series on the climatic and pandemic crises at the beginning of the 2020s.

General articles

General articles include an examination of the experiences of lawyers using technology as part of their work to support victims/survivors of domestic violence (Leavides Domingo-Cabarrubias, Delanie Woodlock, Christopher Alexander, Mai Sato, Genevieve Grant, Jacqueline Weinberg). Off the back of interest in AI-created text and art, Jerome De Cooman explores the premise that human-made art might be more valued than machine-enabled art but argues for a rule of origin labelling the work. Also, Vai Io Lo discusses how communication technology can facilitate both judicial transparency and legal enculturation in China.
