Quo Vadis Law and Government in the Digital Society?

The 4th Industrial Revolution is transforming society at every level. Dullah Omar Institute's Applied Constitutional Studies Laboratory together with the Law Faculty at the University of the Western Cape held a seminar on the 15th of February to examine the impact on law and government in the digital age.

The seminar focused on four main themes:

  • How are AI and big data impacting on legal research, teaching, practice, and doctrine in different fields?
  • How have courts, legal doctrine and government policy responded and adapted to the social changes resulting from the transition to a digital economy?
  • How is the digital transformation transforming the role, organization and functions of law and government as social institutions?
  • From what vantage point do we even begin to theorize/ conceptualize the radical changes?
