The aim of the conference is to develop research themes in the fields of IT Law and the application of IT to Law. We therefore accept papers which cover relatively wide disciplinary areas. We particularly welcome papers, which examine the development of m-commerce in the fields of business, law or politics.

'Developing research themes' means that your paper must deal with a topic in a way which adds to the debate or to knowledge about that topic. An overview of a well developed legal area, for example, will not be of particular interest to other attendees - most will have at least a basic understanding of what is happening in other relevant areas and many will have a very high level of understanding.

Your paper should have a clear point to it.

It is useful to very briefly describe and/or justify your research methodology (e.g. orthodox legal doctrine examination, case review, case study, survey etc) or philosophical position in your paper. With growing interdisciplinary in IT and law, legal academics must better explain the approach they take and make their choices subject to greater transparency.

There is no set length or style for papers (past conference papers can be seen at

BILETA's aim through the conference is to develop the research area and as part of this process we expect that authors will allow their conference paper to be made available on the BILETA web site. This is a valuable resource for those unable to attend and also for researchers in other, particularly developing, countries.

The copyright in papers remains with the author, and we encourage authors to rework their papers after the conference for a more polished journal publication.
