BILETA Conference 2024

The British and Irish Law, Education and Technology Association (BILETA) warmly invites individuals to attend and participate in its 39th Annual Conference hosted by Dublin City University’s Law and Tech Research Cluster in partnership with the Law Society of Ireland and with the support of the Erasmus Mundus Master in Law, Data and AI (EMILDAI) and the ADAPT Centre for AI-driven Innovation.

As usual, the BILETA Annual Conference aims to foster critical and topical discussions on the future of law, technology and legal education. Papers are welcome from academics, researchers, practitioners, postgraduate students, those in business or practice, activists and anyone else with an interest in technology in the law (broadly construed) and legal education. Participants are welcome from any country to enjoy the scholarly, social and cultural experience of BILETA.

In 2024, the BILETA Annual Conference will return to the island of Ireland, this time convened in the premises of Dublin City University’s historical St Patrick’s Campus, located in Drumcondra, in the northern part of Dublin. Although the conference is fully hybrid, we hope to meet you in person here to enjoy the BILETA experience and the vibe of Dublin.
