The University of New South Wales Law Journal will launch Issue 40(4) at the Sydney offices of premier sponsor King & Wood Mallesons on Wednesday 22 November, from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. The Issue features a thematic component on ‘Cyberspace and the Law’, which explores the extent to which the law has developed to accommodate developments in cyberspace technology. We are excited to have the keynote address delivered by Dr Roger Clarke, who is a Visiting Professor at the UNSW Faculty of Law and an independent consultant in the strategic and policy implications of advanced information technologies. In 2009, he was awarded the Australian Privacy Medal in recognition of his research, consultancy and advocacy work examining privacy issues in the context of new technology. As a consultant, he has developed expertise on matters such as cyber security, electronic payment mechanisms, e-democracy and information privacy. Dr Clarke has also provided expert evidence in state Supreme Courts and the Federal Court on information technology matters. The thematic component comprises six articles from nine authors, with a foreword written by Dr Clarke. The thematic articles cover a range of issues, including: an examination and critique of the Australian case law on technology-facilitated cyber-violence; the role of proportionality in granting website blocking injunctions; fair jury trials in the age of social media; the flow of prejudicial comments on social media in the Gerard Baden-Clay trial; the payment of interest on e-money accounts; and the benefits of granting a regulator resolution powers over e-money providers in financial distress. The general component of Issue 40(4) contains seven articles that address a range of topical legal issues. These include: trade union corruption in Australia; sentencing principles for control order violations; unsworn evidence given by children; schemes of arrangement; disclosure of ingredients for fragranced products; the protection of Indigenous cultural heritage; and statistics on the 2016 High Court. Please RSVP by 12pm on Tuesday, 21 November 2017. Guests will receive name tags upon arrival, so please register each attendee's details individually.
