To celebrate our 50th anniversary, the Society for Computers and Law is pleased to announce the publication this autumn of Computers & Law – the First 50 Years.

Richard Susskind and Mark O’Conor, the President and Vice President of SCL, have curated this exclusive collection of the best, the most provocative, the most prescient, and the most amusing of the many thousands of contributions from SCL’s journals and magazines over the last five decades.

  • This is a unique book (almost 400 pages) in the fields of techlaw and lawtech, written by many of the world’s leading experts.
  • The editors have selected seminal and striking articles, first pages which were too good to ignore, and the best headlines.
  • It also includes reflections on the past 50 years and predictions for the next 50 (including those of SCL Chair, Patricia Shaw, and SCL CEO, Caroline Gould).
  • A vital and memorable resource for anyone interested in law and technology, with lessons from the past and signposts to the future.
