Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow is organizing a National Seminar on Law and Technology: Issues and Perspective which will take place on 26th and 27th March 2021.

About the University

Dr.Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University was established by an Act of Govt. of Uttar Pradesh in 2005 and came into being on the 4th of January 2006 to meet up the new challenges in the legal field. Being one of the premier National Law Schools in the country, the University aims to provide quality legal education and to cater to the needs of the legal profession with its Centres of Excellence.

About the Organizing Committee

The Committee to Organise Seminar, Workshops, Extra Murals, and Special Lectures was constituted and mandated to organize academic events at Dr. Ram Manohar Lohiya National Law University, Lucknow.


The study of interaction of law with the ever-changing technology is a critical matter now than ever before. Science and technology have profoundly influenced the course of human civilization and provided us with insights into the world we live in. It has played an essential role in transforming India and the world into a modern and industrialized society. Technology has evolved into various legal fields such as intellectual property rights, cyber law, space law, biotechnology, medical laws, environment laws, evidence law and even human rights.

This Seminar is an endeavour to invite views from cross-sections of the stakeholders on the legal issues relating to technology while learning from the tangle of the purported conclusions reached in the recent past by courts, regulators, technocrats, and commentators on these issues, and to churn out testable theories and suggestions in the field of technology and its legal aspects. The main motto is to widen the awareness about the interconnectedness of law, science and technology to academicians, research scholars, students and even to the common masses.


The event will take place Online due to the Covid-19 constraints.
