Information Technology Law

Practice Area

In 1981, just 200 computers in the world were connected to the internet. This figure grew to around 20 million by 1997. With worldwide usage numbers now in the billions, the next hurdle seems to be the provision of free Wi-Fi to the developing world to ensure equal access for all.

Since the domain of information technology is rapidly evolving, malleable but effective regulation is needed to keep pace with the myriad of different advances which are made on a near-daily basis. Our market-leading portfolio of titles provide practitioners with the technical know-how required to remain at the cutting edge of the information technology world.

EU Data Protection Law by Denis Kelleher and Karen Murray provides astute analysis of the obligations owed by so-called data controllers under the EU’s comprehensive regulatory regime, together with a consideration of the potential fines imposed for deviations therefrom.

Upcoming titles include The Right to be Forgotten by Paul Lambert, Technology Transfer by Mark Anderson and Viktor Warner and Internet Law in Ireland by Michael O’ Doherty.

Our titles are available for purchase in print or e-book format.
