black & white
This book approaches various challenges that recent technological developments pose for legal systems. Aiming to bridge the gap between different fields of law, but also between linguistic and national borders, it offers multilingual and intradisciplinary contributions reflecting on Technology and Society. As technology increasingly permeates our daily lives, reflecting on the impact it has on society and therefore also on the law, becomes ever more pressing.
The present book is the outcome of the 9th Assistentenconferentie/Conférence des assistants (ACCA) held in September 2020 in Leuven, Belgium.
