National Seminar on "Law, Science and Technology: The Way Forward"
Institute of Law, Nirma University is pleased to organize a National Seminar on "Law, Science and Technology: The Way Forward".
Date: 30th - 31st January, 2015
Law and Science both came into existence in the form of a product of civilization and knowledge. Law has been an integral part of growth of civilization as well as human life since ancient times, whereas the impact of science on human life is a recent phenomenon. Today human life and activities are deeply influenced by science, whereas the law is playing the role of the regulator of human life and activities related thereto. Advent of new technologies has brought about situations not previously contemplated.
In today's democratic era and in the interest of man and society, understanding the interface between law, science and technology is not only essential but imperative. There has always been some distance between law, science and technology. It is necessary to bridge the gap.
With a vision to highlight the key issues involving law, science & technology, Institute of Law, Nirma University (ILNU) endeavours to invite students, research scholars, academicians, policy makers, practitioners, NGOs, regulatory bodies, government departments/organisations and various other stakeholders to initiate a dialogue on the theme 'Law, Science and Technology: The Way Forward' and to critically analyse the contribution oflegal framework, technology and other initiatives to find the way for the future challenges.
