The Studies in Law and Technology (SLaTe) Research Group is an interdisciplinary research group of academics and researchers promoting and setting scholarly agendas at the intersection between law and emerging technologies.
As a result of the emergence of new technologies, the legal community encounters several challenging questions. SLaTe provides an intellectual space where academics and stakeholders can discuss these questions.
By combining practice, pedagogy and research, SLaTe identifies new challenges in the interrelationship between law and technology and develops transferable skills training and curriculum for the next generation.
SLaTe is based at Aston Law School, Aston University, Birmingham, UK. Aston Law School has an established record of excellence in legal education and prepares students for diverse careers in law and other industries. Aston Law School offers LLB, LLM and PhD programmes.
SLaTe is led by Dr. Iyare Otabor-Olubor. If you would like to contribute to our activities or collaborate with us, we would be happy to hear from you.
