 Law in Society is Sydney University Law Society's bi-annual journal on current issues affecting the Australian legal landscape and the broader community. The journal was established in 2015 and the Law in Society site was created in 2017 in line with the journal's focus on law and technology for Semester 2 2017.

Two themes are at the heart of this semester's journal: the changing legal landscape as a result of technological innovation and the regulatory challenges which accompany precipitous technological innovation. Buffering covers law and technology from a variety of dimensions, from trust and accountability in an era of technological utopianism to the regulation of embryonic sex-selection, and includes contributions by students from a range of faculties including law, engineering, information technology, biomedical sciences and the arts.

If you are interested in contributing to Law in Society in the future, please subscribe to the Sydney University Law Society's mailing list to be notified of future callouts. 


Editorial team for Buffering (2017): Tilini Rajapaksa (Editor-in-Chief), Samuel Chu, Erika Ly, Alberta Mckenzie and Jessica Ottavi.

Publications Director: Emily Shen
