Professor Rebecca Parry, Dr Alex Kastrinou and Dr Hakan Sahin, Centre for Business Law and Insolvency.
Over the last couple of decades emerging technologies have been seamlessly embedded into our day to day lives, through social media and cloud-computing to crowdfunding. Similarly, new technologies have gained their place in the corporate world and as such, many businesses have already witnessed the challenges and implications arising from their use on their operations. The disruption brought by Covid-19 has served to accelerate many of these trends.
The conference aims to provide a global platform for experts in the field to present and discuss their research and also to foster a networking and knowledge exchange mechanism amongst academics, students, practitioners and businesses globally.
Papers will explore a wide range of key issues that arise out of the interaction of corporate law with technology.
- The intersection of corporate law & the use of emerging technologies;
- Regulation of cryptocurrencies and issues arising from the use of crypto-assets;
- The use of technology and sustainable development.
