Investigating the internet’s impact on business


The role of the internet in today's business world and the creation of new business models, in particular the impact of websites such as Facebook, are explored at the launch of the
University of Southampton’s Institute for Law and the Web at Southampton (ILAWS) Annual Lecture.

Professor Chris Reed, Chair of Electronic Commerce Law at Queen Mary College London, will give the inaugural lecture ‘Doing business online—how to avoid the legal pitfalls’ at the Turner Sims Concert Hall on Wednesday 17 October at 6pm.

The lecture marks the start of innovative new partnership between the University and Thomas Eggar LLP, a leading law firm in the South.

The School of Law at the University of Southampton founded ILAWS in 2006 to explore the legal issues and opportunities associated with the internet, the web and digital technology.

ILAWS is a unique interdisciplinary research centre that combines legal expertise in key areas such as information technology law, e-commerce, IT law and public policy, and intellectual property law. The Institute looks at the crucial current issues for commerce and government, alongside cutting-edge ‘future-gazing’ to discover what the legal issues of the future will be.
