Constitutionality of Technologies used in Smart Cities
Law and Technology have often shared a unique relationship. Not only does law seeks to govern various operational aspects in the usage of technology, it has also used technology for the purposes of its implementation. Technological advancements have often posed various challenges to law which the latter is frequently struggling with.
One such area in which this struggle has manifested itself is in the domain of smart cities. The emergence of smart cities a concept whose birth can be attributed to increasing development of information and technology has posed numerous challenges in the field of data protection, constitutionality of technology and privacy. This often brings us to a pertinent question as to whether law regulates technology or technology operates the implementation of law.
The School of Law, Bennett University is conducting its second National Moot Court Competition from February 7 to 9, 2020 which revolves around this theme of law and technology focusing on the constitutionality of technologies used in Smart Cities. The Moot Court Competition aims to dwell upon this infamous relationship between Law and Technology and its implication on the legal system.
The moot proposition has been drafted by Adv. Swapna Sundar, CEO, IP Dome Strategic Advisors and Adv. P.V.S. Giridhar, Advocate, Madras High Court who specialize in analysing the interface between technology and law.
