Exploring online legal issues

ILAWS is a unique interdisciplinary research centre. It brings together legal expertise in key domains such as information technology law, e-commerce, IT law and public policy and intellectual property law. Our academics publish extensively in journals and write the definitive texts.

It is the host of a new interdisciplinary core on Law, Internet and culture, iCLIC which will be organising regular events on cross-disciplinary subjects and will run a seminar series on IP/IT related issues in collaboration with Bournemouth University.
