About the Seminar
The 4th Edition of the NMIMS Kirit P. Mehta School of Law’s Seminar, as spearheaded by the Centre for Excellence, aims to be an interdisciplinary forum for the fruitful exchange of knowledge.
The program will consist of plenary, half plenary, invited and contributed papers falling broadly within the scope of the conference. Some of the invited papers maybe tutorials in nature from keynote speakers, while others will review recent work in specialised fields.
The theme of the Seminar
Cyber Law is a relatively new field that draws from traditional law. It is becoming an increasingly important field in the modern technological world. It is multi-disciplinary, covering criminal and civil issues ranging from financial crimes to cyberbullying. Privacy, control, and access are all areas with which cyber lawyers regularly engage. As a quickly developing and growing field, cyber law promises to ensure more diverse possibilities in the future. The eminent English jurist Salmond has rightly observed that law seeks to regulate the conduct of individuals in society.
Cyber Law can be described as an endeavour to integrate the challenges presented by human action on the internet with legacy systems of laws applicable to the physical world. Cyber law has three basic building blocks-netizens, cyberspace and technology. It covers a broad area, encompassing many subtopics as well as freedom of expression, digital and electronic signatures, access to and utilisation of the internet, data protection and online
security or online privacy. Generally, cyber law is alluded to as the law of the web, but the term does not have a fixed definition.
The main reasons to enact cyber laws are, firstly, to prevent computer abusers from carrying on their illegal activities for personal gains; secondly, to prevent political rivalry so that innocent people do not become victims of their criminal acts. The internet is not just a world full of information, friends, fun, education and sports, but also a world full of drug dealers, cyber stalkers, psychopaths and even recipes to make bombs, and therefore cyber law plays a vital role in maintaining cybersecurity.
Therefore, the Centre for Excellence, through its Seminar, aims to disseminate legal knowledge pertaining toCyber Law.
