Law and Technology - An asymptotic relationship

For men and women, who in their entire lives only get acquainted with one field of study, it is refreshing to cross those boundaries and delve upon the intermixing, interlinking and forming an asymptotic relationship between the technological, legal and sociological fields.

Technology has had a vast impact on mankind and on the society as a whole. Ever since mankind emerged from stone age to the industrial age, and finally to the technological age, there has been no looking back. Technology since then has grown in abundance.

Be it the growing penetration of digital gadgets in our bedrooms or the advent of new technologies like Big Data Automation, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things and the Virtual Reality, everything has changed how we live, the way we work and what we believe. Inherently, it has also placed us in a unique position to regenerate ethics, conducts, and morals in our society.

At this point, we need a medium to regenerate moral and immoral conduct in the society, and this is where the law comes as a saviour for us. Law is important because it governs what is acceptable, and what is not, in our society. It is an effective medium which can bring about any social change. The role of technological advancements in shaping a society is in no way less than the laws.

Technology has altered the definition of what it means to be social. It has helped us to gain an understanding of other cultures, meet and communicate with people across the borders, maintain a socially active and adept life. However, there is no denying the truth that it is making the society more depressed, isolated, stressed and increasingly distracted. These advancements bring along significant opportunities with some major challenges.

Thanks to the marvels of technology, we are on the verge of social revolution, where there is a need to define socially and digitally accepted behaviors. We need to ponder upon new social realities created by technology and what it means for individuals and society. We need to take the technological domain under the ambit of law to protect itself from its ill effects and us. The technological sphere being an open platform lacks regulation, monitoring, and surveillance. These advancements are disrupting a regulatory environment worldwide, posing immense challenges in front of regulators to strike the right balance of innovation, protecting consumers and resolving the potential threats creeping in the system due to rapid advancement in technology.

Technology is transforming every segment in India and the legal ecosystem is not too far behind. It has disrupted the economics involved in the legal field. It has changed it to tech-infused, inter-disciplinary competitive marketplace from a system which was more labor-intensive and lawyer centered. Technology helps the law and lawyers in other ways too.

The definition of marketing, information dissemination, communicating with clients, cost and time taken in researching case laws, has undergone a drastic change in recent years. The law needs to catch up with the rapid technological advancement, come up with necessary legislation, regulation, monitoring and surveillance measures to let the technological sphere grow exponentially.
