  • Making the case for virtual law cases

    2020. Cormac McGrath (et al.). The Law Teacher


    Concerns have been raised about how well legal education prepares law students for the reality of their future work life. Some research suggests that law students find it difficult to transfer and apply theoretical knowledge to decision-making in real-life contexts. This article presents a novel way, virtual law cases (VLCs), to teach and learn legal knowledge, analytical reasoning and decision-making skills in a safe environment without real-life repercussions. The paper sets out a number of steps when developing a virtual law case and illustrates the different elements that are included. The article also reports the results of the pilot testing with other colleagues, legal experts, as well as with law students in a Swedish legal education context. Early evidence suggests that colleagues and legal experts are confident that using VLCs is a valuable way to teach legal reasoning and decision-making, and that VLCs offer students a tool that allows them to see how legal fields are interconnected.

  • Internet of Things

    2017. Christine Storr, Pam Storr. New Technology, Big Data and the Law, 65-96


    The amount of data collected and processed by smart objects has increased exponentially over the last few years. The use of this technology, known as the Internet of Things or IoT, leads to new challenges and applications of existing data protection laws. Data resulting from the use of such technology has wide-ranging consequences for individual privacy as a large amount of the data in question is often personal in nature. However, the Internet of Things has a wider impact and also creates questions within such fields as contract law and intellectual property law, due in part to the lack of a clear property right to data. In addition, issues of data security are of importance when such technology is used, particularly when considering liability for data loss. This chapter will deal with the legal issues connected to the Internet of Things from a European perspective, taking into account existing laws and in light of the new European Data Protection Regulation. The underlying theme of the chapter focuses on the existence of legal rights to data created through the use of the Internet of Things and the various stakeholders that may have an interest in the data, from the service provider and the individual user, to intermediaries and those involved in allowing smart objects to fulfill their potential. The question of whether the legal challenges identified in the chapter can be overcome will also be addressed, along with the future role of law in the use and development of the Internet of Things.
