About this Event
SCRIPTed is a high-quality, open access, interdisciplinary, and multi-lingual journal focused on research in the areas of law, society, and technologies in the broadest sense. This 15th anniversary conference will bring together key scholars in the main fields of the journal – intellectual property law, information technology law and medical law – to share their reflections on and insights into the evolution of research in their own discipline over the last fifteen years and to shed light on pathways forward for future research.
