Law and Change: Law in Times of Crisis

About the Series

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is touted as the remedy for many of the economic, social, political and cultural contentions in an epoch where social demographics are unbalance, economic growth is slowing, labour markets are fragile, and global trade is wracked with protectionism. The arrival of the pandemic has heightened calls for AI and big data to help innovate economies out of the worst. This transition presents significant challenges for the ecosystems of law firms, and the requirements of due process in the exercise of litigation. Against the realisation of seismic shifts brought about by current and impending global watersheds, this series reflects how first the pandemic and then inevitable future crises will change the law, and how law can be understood as a change agent, talking to today in upheaval, and to new tomorrows.

The series provides a space for scholars, educators, practitioners and leaders to share their contributions on the present and future relevance of the law and reflect on law and change, and change through law in times of global crises. The contributions will be critical, focusing on contemporary challenges to social ordering and global sustainability where law in context has much to say. In addition, the series will question law’s regulatory relevance across a wide range of substantive and procedural fields currently facing transition.
