The latest International Association of IT Lawyers (IAITL) conference (Athens 2012) was the largest to date. It attracted 175 professional, academic and student lawyers to discuss key issues through four streams. It is organised by IAITL President, Professor Sylvia Kierkegaard of ILAWS and ILAWS Director Professor Steve Saxby.

ILAWS PhD student Ioanna Magklasi won the Best Student Paper Award. Her paper was entitled Electronic transport records. Assessing the contribution of the Rotterdam Rules to e-commerce. The prize for the best student paper was sponsored by the journal Computer Law and Security Review, which is edited by Steve Saxby.

Dr Sophie Stalla-Bourdillon, Lecturer in IT Law at ILAWS also presented the paper Online monitoring, filtering, blocking ... what is the difference? Where to draw the line? All of the 150 papers presented at the event were bound in two books which were presented to delegates.

The Athens event combined the 7th International Conference on Legal, Security and Privacy Issues in IT Law (LSPI), 6th International Law and Trade Conference (ILTC), 3rd International Private Law Conference (IPL) and 2nd International Public Law Conference (IPLC). The conferences are devoted to expanding understanding and developing international relationships among those who are working with issues dealing with information technology, economic and public and private law.
