The Law and Technology research group brings together a diverse group of researchers, professionals, stakeholders and students, from legal and non-legal backgrounds, interested in the intersections between law, technology and society.
We engage with a wider community, both nationally and internationally, sharing interest in the legal, regulatory and governance issues raised by technologies. Please browse this website to become more familiar with our research, and to look for opportunities to get involved.
The group's research is focused on number of topics related to law and technology, including: aerospace, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, biotechnology, business-tech, cyber law, digital entertainment, e-commerce, employment, environment and climate change, healthcare, information technology, intellectual property, military technology, nano- and neuro- technology, robotics, security, space law, telecommunications, and many more.
The research group offers activities and supports publications for students and researchers.
This event saw students from the MBA Executive Program, the Department of Law and Department of Aerospace Engineering (Space Technology pathway) come together in a directed Hackathon.
The students were asked to produce a feasible satellite mission concept that aimed to assist meeting one of the 17 UN sustainability goals but additionally provide a commercially viable product that could be pitched to a local satellite company, Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL).
Congratulations to the team of researchers led by Dr Damian Bielicki on the publication of an edited book on Regulating Artificial Intelligence in Industry (Routledge 2022). The book provides a unique examination of the regulations concerning the use of AI in a wide range of sectors, including aviation, energy, government, healthcare, legal, maritime, military, music, and others. It addresses the broad range of aspects, including privacy, liability, transparency, justice, and others, from the perspective of different jurisdictions.
