The UIA would like to present its Kochi - Kerala seminar on “Cyberspace Usages – Challenges and Dispute Resolution”.
This seminar is organised by the UIA, UIA India Chapter and the Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA).
The programme is now available online.

Cyberspace has become a necessary part of everyone’s daily life. The growing importance and significance of the Internet have not only resulted in radical changes to the social context and behaviour in the last decade, but have also brought along numerous challenges to legal thoughts, approaches and systems. All of them were inexperienced before. The related issues are and were the origin for a broad variety of thoughts and initiatives.

The seminar’s goal is to highlight, present and assess some of the pertinent current legal approaches towards the cyberspace and its challenges. A particular emphasis will be on ways to cope with the unpredictabilities and particular legal risks of cyberspace. Aspects of contract law, criminal law and approaches for dispute resolution will be addressed with a national, regional and international point of view.

The Seminar is a one and a half day event (Saturday, the whole day and Sunday morning), and in the best UIA tradition, the participants are offered the opportunity to get together on the evening of the day before (Friday, February 18) for a welcome dinner.

The seminar will be held in English, without simultaneous translation.

The seminar will allow participants to establish new valuable contacts as well as to visit and discover Kerala.

Join us in Kochi: we look forward to welcoming you there!
